EARTHxFilm showed more than 60 films over the course of the Festival. Audiences learned about environmental topics such as climate, energy, food & agriculture, recycling & conservation, water & ocean, and wildlife & pollinators.
More than 40 filmmakers attended the festival and shared their stories about environmental action, filmmaking and art with EARTHxFilm Audiences.
EARTHxFilmmakers participated in Q&As after most festival screenings, and we presented several in-depth panel discussions on environmental issues with filmmakers and experts in their fields. Audiences relished the opportunity to discuss issues with the experts.
EARTHxEdu programs introduced young filmmakers to the nuts and bolts of environmental filmmaking with workshops and courses. The winner of our first Online Short Film Competition, Kaile Walker, took home a $1,000 grand prize and we gave out $4,500 in total prizes.
