On the eve of Earth Day, the second annual Fast Forward Film Festival will screen 16 short films at The Little Theater Thursday night.

The finalists were chosen from hundreds of entries to the festival, which uses the art of film to raise awareness about the environment.  Ten finalists are in the adult category and 6 are in the youth category, which is new this year.

The screening tonight starts at 6 p.m., and a gala is planned for Saturday night at the George Eastman Museum from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
