The One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest experienced a surge in submissions from grades 3 through college age, reaching a total of 115 from local students as well as those as far away as Hawaii. From these entries, a jury of 20 environmental and film leaders selected 11 for top recognition.
Our Festival is too good to keep to yourself. Yes, our films are focused on the environment, but they also include dozens of general interest themes that many others would enjoy.
Peruse our schedule and invite your BFFs (Best Fest Friends). Bringing friends to the Fest is a great way to expose folks in your circle who may not be aware of these issues.
One Earth needs hundreds of volunteers to help us bring our thought-provoking and community-activating programs to life. Please consider lending a bit of your time and energy to this year’s Fest. You’ll work side by side with people like Erik Malone, a long-time volunteer with us, and an all-around wonderful person.
Please join us in launching the 7th annual One Earth Film Festival and our 2018 Festival theme, “This Is the Moment.” Enjoy food and drink as you mingle with like-minded friends in an elegant setting, the sparkling, contemporary, LEED-certified Gratz Center at Fourth Presbyterian Church in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.
Bring your daughters, invite your mother and grab your friends for a wonderful, affirming experience. Of course, sons, fathers and guys are invited, too! As International Women’s Day falls on March 8, right in the middle of our Festival, we want to point you to 5 official One Earth film selections that highlight strong women.
