One Earth Film Festival—the Midwest’s premier environmental film fest—returns March 2-11 in Chicago.
Featuring 30 films at 50 locations throughout Chicagoland and neighboring suburbs, the festival offers people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to engage in this year’s theme—“This Is the Moment.” The theme encourages participants to use this moment to learn, find your voice, collaborate, and take action.
Green America will be there!
Anna Meyer, Green America’s Food Campaigns Director, will be featured on the Q&A panel after the film Wasted—a documentary about food waste—to discuss solutions and opportunities for action.
Space is limited so get your tickets today (admission $7).
Sunday, March 4th, 3-5:30pm
Haymarket Pub & Brewery, 737 W. Randolph Street, Chicago
Prior to the showing of Wasted, from 1:30-2:45pm, we’ll also be hosting a casual gathering of Green America friends and members at the Haymarket Pub & Brewery. PLEASE RSVP to Kathy Harget ([email protected]; 202-872-5330) if you plan to attend!
We hope you can join us on Sunday, March 4th—and every day of the One Earth Film Festival—for beautiful, award-winning documentary films, rich discussions with trained facilitators and expert panelists, and one-on-one access to partners from your community who can connect you to local and meaningful action.
See you in Chicagoland!
