Subject Line: 2014 One Earth Film Festival is Coming Soon
The One Earth Film Festival is coming March 7-9, 2014, and it’s expanding to include new venues!
Last year's One Earth Film Festival drew more than 2,000 attendees. Don’t miss this opportunity to see nearly 30 inspiring films in one dynamic weekend on sustainability topics such as urban farming, biodiversity, food, transportation, oceans, climate change, energy and environmental advocacy. The power and range of these films is impressive and will appeal to those who are already committed to environmental action as well as to those who are just learning about the issues.
Facilitated discussions at each film program will bring added insights and give everyone a chance to participate in important, change-making discussions. See transformative films such as Harmony, GMO OMG, More Than Honey, and Blackfish and join in special events, most of which are FREE. One Earth Film Festival promises something meaningful for everyone – adults, students, families and children.
