Watermelons, Pelicans and Gardens...Oh My!

We feel your pain...this frosty winter has inspired severe bouts of cabin fever. Parents are feeling it, and kids are, too. The One Earth Film Festival presents several opportunities for kids to get out of the house and explore another world...through the magic of film and community!

Many films in the One Earth Film Festival lineup will appeal to teenage viewers, but the festival will also present five programs specifically designed for kids ages 14 and under. These events are free, but seating is limited. Reservations are highly recommended.

Quick Guide to Expert Advice at
One Earth Film Festival

Making change in your life is rarely simple. But the One Earth Film Festival makes it easier by inviting inspiring experts who can help you dig deeper into the films and bring home useful takeaways. An exciting line-up of speakers and activities are in place for this year’s One Earth Film Festival. As in years past, film screenings will be combined with relevant activities and appearances by experts who will enrich post-film discussions. Audience members can ask questions and share ideas, which can lead to continued discussion, local advocacy, and, most importantly, people-driven solutions to the myriad environmental challenges facing our planet.
Join us with Jamie Ponce at the Green Carpet Gala on Friday, March 7th (7 pm at 19th Century Club, 178 Forest Ave., Oak Park) to celebrate the opening of One Earth Film Festival 2014. Ponce is the City Director for Chicago in the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group - Clinton Climate Initiative.  He is currently working with the Office of Mayor Rahm Emanuel to develop and implement the City of Chicago's sustainability strategy.
