Oak Park, IL–(ENEWSPF)–January 29, 2017. One Earth Film Festival has just announced the schedule for its sixth year of bringing outstanding and solution-oriented environmental documentaries and programs to the Chicago region. Expanded to include two weekends for the first time, the festival runs March 3-12.
Among other films on this year’s schedule are: “The Age of Consequences,” “Before the Flood,” “SEED: The Untold Story,” “Can You Dig This?” “Minimalism,” “Crying Earth Rise Up,” “Dive!” and the Young Filmmakers Contest winners.
Through its tailor-made post-film programs, One Earth Film Festival addresses issues surrounding water, energy, transportation, food, waste and recycling, environmental advocacy, social justice and climate change.
Programs are built around full-feature or a mix of short films, followed by action-oriented discussions led by environmental experts and advocates. Some festival programs are designed specifically with families and children in mind.
Two pre-event screenings will be held at Loyola University and Dominican University before the official festival kick-off.
The Green Carpet Gala, the festival’s signature opening event, will be held at the beautiful LEED® Silver certified Gratz Center of Fourth Presbyterian Church, 115 E. Delaware Place, in the Magnificent Mile neighborhood.
Most screenings are free with a suggested $6 donation. Reservations for all programs can be made through Eventbrite.
