More filmmakers put One Earth Film Festival
on their calendars this year
Filmmakers representing a third of the films being screened at this year’s festival have confirmed their attendance. This is another milestone in One Earth Film Festival’s six-year history and a testament to its commitment to producing rich, compelling programs.
So far, 13 filmmakers have confirmed their presence at 15 screenings and that number could grow.
Having filmmakers on hand adds an exciting dimension to individual screenings and the overall festival. The filmmakers can personally explain and describe the filmmaking process and give audiences an insider’s view of how they approached and mapped out the major themes in their works. And audiences, in turn, can ask questions and give in-the-moment feedback.
These filmmakers are environmental advocates behind the lens and will be inspiring festival audiences toward environmental advocacy too -- as we take in their rich stories.
Here are the filmmakers we’ll be hosting: Matt Wechsler
(“Sustainable”); Catherine Zimmerman
(“Hometown Habitat”); Paula Kirk
and Pamela Tanner Boll
(“A Small Good Thing”); Tom Desch, Patricia Wisniewski
and Lee Botts
(“Shifting Sands”); Sharon Karp
(“Crying Earth Rise Up”); Bob Nesson
(“Power to the Pedals”); Leo Horrigan
(“Food Frontiers”); Daniel Hinerfelt
(“Sonic Sea”); Cidney Hue
(“Shark Loves the Amazon”), and Alexandra Halkin
