Robert De Niro's Tribeca Film Festival opened last night in an unconventional way. Al Gore hosted the event, which began with 9 short films about the environment in lieu of a full-length, big name movie like Spiderman-3 (which will premiere later on at Tribeca). The films are produced by SOS (Save Our Selves), which works towards raising awareness about global warming and climate change.
It's awesome that giving back and environmental awareness is becoming the hot new celebrity trend these days. Hopefully Hollywood can continue to use its fame to influence America to start getting serious about saving our planet.
