Greetings, sponsors, filmmakers and all friends of the environment.
Welcome to the opening weekend of the 6th Annual One Earth Film Festival. Tonight's Green Carpet Gala marks the official start of this year's nine-day festival. It's our hope that what you'll see and hear over the coming days will enlighten, inspire and move you to take positive action for our environment.
We invite you to browse the program guide to find screening descriptions and times, then book reservations for programs of interest. The Festival is presenting 30 films in 47 screening events at 39 locations throughout Chicagoland and neighboring suburbs, as well as in DuPage, Lake and Kane Counties. Many screenings feature Q&As with filmmakers, local experts and resources from relevant organizations.
Most screenings are free, with a suggested donation of $6 per film.
