It’s a big week of festivals for Olmsted. First stop in Nevada City, California on Saturday night at the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival, and then on to Princeton, NJ for the Princeton Environmental Film Festival on Tuesday, January 18.
THE OLMSTED LEGACY joins films and filmmakers from across the globe, and will screen at 7:00pm at the Princeton Public Library – 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton, NJ. Executive Producer Mike Messner (writer of this recent op-ed in the Washington Post: “Sometimes money does grow on trees” ) will discuss the genesis of the idea for the film and his efforts to keep Olmsted’s vision alive today.
Olmsted’s landscapes, I like to believe, are both wild and scenic, despite being surrounded by decidedly un-wild and un-scenic urban landscape. Therefore, I’m thrilled that the film was accepted to this year’s Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Nevada City, California.
If you find yourself in California on Saturday evening, east of the Sierra Nevadas, stop by Nevada City! THE OLMSTED LEGACY will be playing at Vet’s Hall. I’ll be there, speaking after the film, and blogging updates!
