It could be said each year, that the Environmental Film Festival is as timely as an environmental film fest could be. And that statement would be true every time. This year's collection of 150 *mostly* free films traffic in the whimsical, the serious, the tragic, the thoughtful and the hopeful.

The festival kicked off Tuesday and will run through March 27. There are many, many venues spread out all over town. You can check out each and every one of the films here. Here are a few of my picks for this weekend.
