For any Angelenos, the 2008 LA Downtown Film Festival concludes with Sustainable LA, a green festival on Sunday, August 17th from 12 noon to 10 pm. Pending family crisis or earthquake, your Intrepid Reporter will be there. If you live relatively nearby, check it out.
Offered up for your eco-enjoyment will be free screenings of green documentaires at MOCA, panel discussions about urban parks, the electric car, Slow Food and green collar jobs. Plus a Farmers' Market. The day will end with a screening of "Flow" from this year's Sundance Film Festsival.
Thanks to my eco-buddy, Tanya, at All Green Things, for giving me the heads up. You can visit her at the event or at her site.
Now if I can just figure out how to get photos into this blog (newbie here) and navigate the parking. Gas up, bring a cooler and reusable water bottle, slather on the sunscreen. Wear the stupid hat and get laughed at by the family (not a hat person). Wear comfortable shoes. Stash the cash for purchasing nibbles from farmers and artisanal types. (confessing ahead of time, Crunchy Chicken) Print out a map. Bring along reusable bags. Charge up the phone and the camera. Throw in paper and pen to take Intrepid Reporter notes. Pray that I can navigate the parking.
And I'm going alone. Imagine if the kids were little and potty training and this became a family outgoing. No, I won't go there.
