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.
