One Earth Film Festival is a Chicago area film festival that creates opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability and the power of human involvement through sustainability-themed films and facilitated discussion. We engage private, public and non-profit sector community partners in the sponsorship and production of the film festival.
Last years pre-Festival screenings, had almost 3,500 attendees viewing 43 screenings of 33 films in over 37 locations throughout Chicagoland, and in locations in the adjacent counties of Lake and DuPage.
This year’s festival promises to expand its reach, attendance and impact region-wide.

Through sustainability-themed films and facilitated discussion — educate, raise awareness, and inspire the adoption of solution-oriented sustainable actions.
Stimulate, energize and activate communities through deep involvement in the One Earth Film Festival, maximizing citizen reach and expanding the movement.
1) Create thought-provoking, transformative opportunities for understanding climate change, sustainability, and the power of human involvement.
2) Pack an intensive education & awareness punch through rich film stories, interactive discussions, and experiences.
3) “Expand the movement” by attracting people not generally involved in or already committed to “green” activities.
