Symphony of the SoilThis is a listing of some of the green-themed and environmental films that came out in the last couple of years. Click on each of the links below (or go to IMDB.com) to see previews/trailers, reviews, and descriptions of each film. I have not seen all or even most of these films yet, so I can't say whether all of them are worth seeing. Which ones have you seen and can you recommend?

Click here to see my previous listing of green-themed films; it lists movies that came out between 2006-2011.

Scroll to the bottom of this post to see a list of some green film festivals; those websites provide information on more films, including some brand new ones that haven’t been shown widely yet.
