A Past Festival attendee said:



 “As a filmmaker passionate about environmental issues, I was particularly impressed with our post-screening moderator’s laser-like focus on discussing actionable behavior with the audience. . . . The One Earth Film Festival isn’t just about showing great films, it’s about getting people to make meaningful connections with others, and get motivated to make a difference in this world.
