The 6th Annual One Earth Film Festival is scheduled for March 3-12, 2017. This year a slate of 30 acclaimed environmental films will be shown at 39 locations throughout the metro Chicago area, including at such notable venues as Peggy Notebaert Museum, Adler Planetarium, Old St. Patrick’s Church, Northwestern University, Museum of Science and Industry, Garfield Park Conservatory, and Elmhurst College.
Films on Climate Change, Food/Agriculture, Conservation, Social Justice, Waste/Recycling, and other important environmental issues of the day are included. For a complete schedule, visit the Festival website. Most events are free, with a suggested $6 donation, and include post-film discussions which seek to bring about an understanding of climate change, sustainability, and the power of people to initiate positive actions for the planet. Reservations are available online and are recommended.
Sponsorships are still available, and you are invited to join the 200 plus volunteers who help run the events. Celebrate at the kick-off event: the Green Carpet Gala, on Friday, March 3. And please help spread the word by “sharing” our Facebook page with your networks.
This is a spectacular event for those who are working to protect and restore the Earth’s natural systems as well as for those who are learning how to get involved. See you there!
