2020 Festival, The 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.
The 2020 Official Selections includes diverse, captivating films submitted from 41 different countries. Some of the themes in this year’s selection are: solutions, activism, conservation, and human connectivity. VR experiences, presented by the University of The Pacific, allow viewers to step back in time, experience global issues, and explore remote areas. This year we are partnered with the national Earth Day Network to help bring our films to communities around the world. For our local efforts we are partnered with the University of Pacific Media X, Chico Sunrise Movement, Butte 350.org, the Butte Creek Ecological Preserve, Idea Fab Labs, Regenerating Paradise, The Camp Fire Restoration Project, Butte County Fires Safe Council, and Paradise Community Guilds. Join us as we celebrate the Earth through Cinema.
About The Earth Day Film Festival
The Earth Day Film Festival is nourishing the movement toward a more-harmonious relationship to our environment from the ground up. We are a diverse group of filmmakers, artists, scientists, and activists who seek to change the content we celebrate and how it’s celebrated. Meaning, we not only offer Earth-honoring films but do so in an Earth-honoring way. We are constantly assessing whether our practices align with our messages; we hope to ‘be the change we wish to see in the world’ by shifting the ways we create and consume.
