Coming Up: Nature Film Series Starts Oct.3

The 2012 Focus on Nature Film Series at the Jacob Burns Film Center  in Pleasantville will run from Wednesday, Oct. 3, to Wednesday, Oct. 24 and features five film screenings, each combined with Q & A discussions about the natural environment and the passion and poetry it inspires.

The Oct. 3 opening night includes a screening of Birders: The Central Park Effect, a Q&A with filmmaker Jeffrey Kimball and author Jonathan Rosen, and a light reception.

On Oct. 21, the series includes Chimpanzee, a special Sunday afternoon family film that will feature a Q&A with wildlife expert Andrew Simmons and a live ring-tailed lemur!

On Oct. 24, one of the great nature cinematographers, Westchester resident Andrew Young, will show clips from his award-winning documentaries and tell us about many of the films he’s made, focusing on brown bears in Alaska, lemurs in Madagascar, and beavers and nesting wood ducks right outside his home in Croton-on-Hudson.

Young has earned an Emmy for Best Cinematography and three Awards for Excellence in Cinematography at Sundance. He is developing a science curriculum that uses cameras to study nature.

More information about the series is available on the Jacob Burns Film Center Website or by phone: 914- 747- 5555.



Focus on Nature is presented in partnership with Scenic Hudson and Teatown Lake Reservation with generous support from the Hoch family and the van Hengel Family Fund.
