Cinema Verde, a Gainesville environmental film and arts festival, is hosting its first fundraiser tonight for the festival, which will be held from March 18 to March 27.
The event includes a free screening of the movie "Age of Stupid" at the Civic Media Center, 433 S Main St., from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Cinema Verde is asking for $5 donations.
The first hour of the fundraiser will have free food and drinks. The movie will be shown at 8 p.m., and a film discussion will follow.
All money collected will be split between the Civic Media Center and Cinema Verde, which will use the money to fund the festival.
The 10-day festival will show a number of environmentally based films and have activities and workshops geared toward spreading awareness about sustainability.
