One Earth Film Festival Thanks its Generous Sponsors, Partners, Venue Hosts, and Attendees and Looks Forward to Seeing You March 3-12, 2017. Woohoo!!

For more than 5 years, One Earth Film Festival has been devoted to its mission of Moving Planet, Moving People by selecting a change-making slate of acclaimed environmental films with which to pair compelling, awareness-raising programs. In this time, thousands have been moved from being ready-to-learn, to engaging in personal, local, or regional ecological action. This year, we welcomed 3,500 attendees from Chicagoland and beyond -- to 33 films in over 43 screening events at 37 locations. None of it would have been possible without our incredible volunteers, partners, and sponsors.

Our Festival team is already busy selecting films for our March 3-12, 2017 lineup (email if you'd like to help!), and we are currently accepting submissions for our 2017 Young Filmmakers Contest (deadline Jan 2017 -- scroll down for more info).
