This year’s One Earth Film Fest theme is “The Power of We,” which means that we all need to contribute our passion and voices to make meaningful changes in the fight for our climate. That’s why, for the last eight years, we’ve given motivated and inspired young people from ages 8–25 the opportunity to research, produce, and show their original films as part of our Young Filmmakers Contest. We invite you to join us at the contest winners’ screenings, to be inspired by their creativity and dedication, and to learn more about the non-profit organizations who will benefit from matching grants the winners receive.  

Founding Director of the One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest Sue Crothers Gee will announce the winners.

In an effort to reduce waste, we would like our guests to consider bringing reusable drink containers for coffee, hot chocolate, or water (compostable cups will also be available).

Families with children, as well as teens and young adults encouraged to attend. Discounted parking at 20 E. Randolph, InterPark Self-Park for $19. Central location is also easily accessible by elevated train and buses.
