Big News for 2016 Festival Filmmakers Brandon and Lance Kramer
City of Trees screened twice at the 24th Annual Environmental Film Festival, before its public broadcast premiere on the PBS/World Channel program America ReFramed. Now, the film, which was just released on Netflix on May 15, will be available to millions of subscribers online!
A deeply personal story about environmental justice, green jobs, and the ‘messy truths’ behind the fight for social change, the documentary was directed and produced by DC-based filmmakers Brandon and Lance Kramer of Meridian Hill Pictures, in association with Kartemquin Films and Magic Labs Media. Featured prominently in the film are the grassroots efforts of Washington Parks & People and the DC Green Corps Training Program, as serious obstacles arise and rifts widen in the city.
City of Tress had its world premiere at the 2015 American Conservation Film Festival (Audience Choice Award Winner) and a dual-premiere at DCEFF 2016. In addition to its Netflix release, the film is also available on iTunes, Amazon Video and Google Play.
