The 7th Green Image Film Festival

More and more people are becoming aware of the potential disasters associated with climate change and other ongoing environmental issues, and many are now making it a habit to use fewer plastic products and more renewable forms of energy.

For those who hope to learn how to boost their green credentials, Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward is offering a helping hand with the seventh iteration of the Green Image Film Festival, held at Hibiya Library and Museum Convention Hall from Feb. 21 to 23.

Fourteen films will be shown, with four being in English. Among them are "Under Thin Ice" (2019), which shows how the melting of ice is threatening Arctic animals, and "Tipping Point: The Food Crunch" (2019), a documentary from Singapore.

Some of the other showings will have English subtitles, such as Taiwanese documentary "The Scenery Through the Smog" (2018) and "Smoke" (2017), which provides a look at air pollution in Tehran. Alongside those will be "The Pack" (2019), an animated short from Russia that depicts the relationship between wolves and humans. (Yuki Yamauchi)
