The Green Lifestyle Film Festival (GLFF) was founded with the idea that film could be used to create change for the greater good. Film is a conduit to our psyche and can hold the key for liberation and destruction. Many green events focus on the destruction of our outer world and fail to address core issues. The GLFF is a new type of green event, meant to be uplifting and positive, full of inspired films, healthy food and diverse dialogue to produce a window for changing ourselves. An inner transformation can alter the course of our planet.

ABOUT 2010 GLFF: This passionate and thought provoking film festival was founded by Dorit, owner of Serenity Spaces, in 2006. Now in its fourth year, the GLFF has blossomed into an international event and will be creating headlines with this year's event. The GLFF will be held March 19-21, 2010, at the James Bridges Theater at the University of California, Los Angeles in Los Angeles, Calif., USA. A full weekend pass to the GLFF is regularly $195, with day and half-day passes also available at economical prices. In addition to the film festival indoors, there will be a free-to-the-public outdoor arena with entertainment, live food demos and booths to inspire creativity and wellness in all spheres of our lives.

GLFF HIGHLIGHTS: This scene stealing and innovative film festival will have a Green Carpet for celebrity interviews, organic and vegan food, solutions filled films and filmmakers committed to making a difference. Celebrity hosts include Australian model/actress Joanne Rose and Mad TV comedienne/actress Debra Wilson Skelton. In addition, Norwegian Playboy Playmate Lillian Muller and Pre-teen hip hop sensation Maxso will also be on hand for the weekend.

Eco-fashionistas will be able to see the launch of the first eco bag made of grass and eco fashion by local designer Galina. And, where there's fashion and celebrities, photographers are sure to follow: celebrity photographer Maurice Rinaldi is the official GLFF photographer.

FIRSTS: The 2010 GLFF will be home to the launch of the first Vegetarian Food Drive in the United State supported by the Westside Food Bank. Also launching this year is the GLFF's Pre-Teen and Teen Project that gives a voice to detached youth. This innovative program matches young people with filmmakers and recycled electronics to help them create their projects.

FILMS: At the heart of the GLFF are the filmmakers who strive to make a difference in the world. We enjoy celebrating our participating filmmakers at the GLFF and thank them for dedicating their talents, income and energy to examining what sustainability really means by presenting them a Green Apple Award at our black-tie, five-star eco-culinary Award Dinner to culminate the GLFF weekend.

Their films explore topics such as how we birth our young, how we raise children, the construction and design of our homes, illness, our movement around the Earth and how this is in reflected in how we feed ourselves, how we treat each other and the impact of our consumerist behavior on the planet. The directors of the films shown at the GLFF will be on hand all weekend to engage in dialogue with audience members and are available for media interviews.

The Green Lifestyle Film Festival (GLFF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, financed by donations and grants from individuals and foundations who recognize the intrinsic power of films to inspire, motivate, educate and stimulate change on a large scale level.
