Telluride Film Festival

The highlight of this week for me was attending the Telluride Film Festival, which was sponsored by the VLS Environmental Law Society. The Film Festival was held on Wednesday evening in the Chase Center, and was a really nice break from my endless days and nights in the library. It was lovely to sit and watch a wide selection of short films that focused on everything from Greenpeace activists, an awesomely funny movie about fly fishing in Russia, a tiny ski slope in Scotland suffering from the effects of global warming, and a rock climber who free climbed El Capitan in Yosemite National Park in less than three hours. Needless to say, I walked home after watching these short films reminded why it is so important to be an environmental activist as well as an enthusiastic participant in the world around me.

ELS is a student organization whose purpose is to promote environmental awareness and provide a forum for student participation in projects and action concerning global environmental issues. The ELS strives to affect global, national, statewide, and local issues by pursuing specific goals and cooperating with other environmental groups. They do a really wonderful job organizing events for the VLS student body and are one of the most active student groups here.
