In 2011, RSC, in partnership with Rye Country Day School, launched its Green Screen Series with the screening of Bag It. This was followed by No Impact Man in 2013, and Idle Threat in 2016.

Green Screen 2016

RSC's 2016 Green Screen presented Idle Threat: Man on Emission, a documentary about film maker George Pakenham's attempts to reduce air pollution and combat climate change by exposing New York City's lax enforcement efforts.

Green Screen 2013

RSC's 2013 Green Screen presented No Impact Man, a documentary about Colin Beavan, who made the decision to give up virtually all of the comforts of modern living -- electricity, gas-powered transportation, shipped food and public waste disposal -- in a drastic effort to curb his environmental impact.

Green Screen 2011

RSC's first Green Screen presented Bag It, a documentary about film maker Jeb Berrier, who makes a pledge to stop using plastic bags at the grocery store and how this commitment transformed his life.
