The Georgetown Green Film Series was established by the Southwestern University Office of Sustainability to bring awareness to the environmental crisis through the visual arts by presenting films with an environmental focus for free to the Georgetown and neighboring communities. In addition to showing an environmental film, a panel of experts is invited to lead a proactive discussion with the audience about the topic at hand.

This event is sponsored by the Texas Regional Alliance for Campus Sustainability (TRACS), the City of Georgetown Arts & Culture Board, and the Southwestern University Environmental Studies Department.
