The Environmental Film Festival’s Student Screening of Penguins
Presented by: The Environmental Film Festival

The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital (DCEFF) will present its free signature film program for middle and high school students from DCPS and charter schools in all eight wards of the District. After the screening, we will host a Q&A with a special guest, thus providing student attendees with a forum for face‐to‐face interaction with filmmakers and subjects and deepen engagement with the topics at hand. This year's film is PENGUINS: a coming-of-age story about an Adélie penguin named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. None of it comes easily for him, especially considering he's targeted by everything from killer whales to leopard seals, who unapologetically threaten his happily ever after.
