General Event Description
(for emails, calendar listings, newsletters & more)

Now in our 7th year, the One Earth Film Fest is back, ready to engage audiences in climate action! The Midwest's premier environmental film festival runs March 2-11, 2018. Our theme this year is “This is the Moment.” As we see the effects of climate change on our planet, this is the moment to learn…find our voice…collaborate…and take action. This year’s festival offers people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to do all of these things. We will present more than 30 films at more than 50 screenings throughout Chicago, as well as in Cook, DuPage, Lake and Kane Counties -- and for the first time, Whiting, Indiana. At these events, enjoy beautiful, award-winning documentary films; rich discussions with trained facilitators and expert panelists; and one-on-one access to partners from your community who can connect you to local, meaningful action. The Festival kicks off with our signature Green Carpet Gala on March 2 at 4th Presbyterian Church's Gratz Center, in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile neighborhood. Most events are FREE with a suggested $7 donation. Seating is limited. Reservations are strongly suggested. Visit to reserve tickets, volunteer, sponsor or donate.
