The Sentinels to Premiere at the D.C. Environmental Film Festival

The D.C. Environmental Film Festival will hold the first public screening of the documentary “The Sentinels” on Friday, March 13th at the U.S. Department of the Interior, located at 1849 C Street NW, Washington D.C.  The festival event will take place from 6:30 PM ET – 9:00 PM ET.  “The Sentinels” will be the third film to premiere that evening and will begin around 7:30 PM ET.  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker, Grizzly Creek Films, and several subjects of the film. 

“The Sentinels” is an exciting new documentary that explores the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership—a collaboration among the U.S. Department of Defense, Department of Agriculture, and Department of the Interior that works across conventional boundaries to strengthen military readiness, conserve natural resources, and bolster agricultural economies.  The Partnership recognizes “Sentinels” as those who stand guard, watch over, and look ahead.  Today, a new corps of Sentinels is emerging across the country to steward and defend the last intact landscapes from disappearing in a tidal wave of urbanization and land conversion.  These individuals fight for clean air, clear water, and the freedom to roam for both people and wildlife.  They also play a vital and unheralded role in protecting our national security.  For the first time, “The Sentinels” will tell their diverse stories.
