One Earth Film Festival is a Chicago area film festival that creates opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability and the power of human involvement through sustainability-themed films and facilitated discussion. We engage private, public and non-profit sector community partners in the sponsorship and production of the film festival.
Our last festival ran from March 6-15, 2020. Several thousand attendees viewed screenings/events of 26 films in 26 locations throughout Chicagoland, and in locations in the adjacent counties of Lake, DuPage, Kane, as well as Whiting, Indiana. This year’s festival promises to expand its reach, attendance and impact region-wide.
Almost 9 years ago, Green Community Connections introduced the annual One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest. The contest is open to students from grades 3 through college level and was created with the goal of engaging youth in the discussion about sustainability issues and getting them thinking about solutions. Each winning filmmaker will receive a cash prize and matching grant of equal value to be given to a non-profit organization chosen by the filmmaker. Winning films are featured at One Earth Film Festival.
