About EarthxFilm

EarthxFilm
EarthxFilm is a 21st century film festival that uses the power of film and emerging media to raise awareness of environmental and social global issues. Incisive, powerful storytelling is crucial to a livable future on this earth and we believe in taking the audience from an emotional reaction to action in an entertaining and memorable way.

 

From Friday, April 13-Sunday, April 22, 2018, EarthxFilm will present over 60 feature and short documentaries at screenings and events across the city, culminating at EarthX, the largest environmental gathering in the world. An Interactive Zone will take visitors on journeys into space, beneath the oceans and on treks into the jungles of Africa through virtual and mixed reality experiences. International art from the Mandela Foundation and large display art in partnership with Amplifier Foundation, along with a two-day lineup of bands on the music stage, will round out a rich experience for all ages.

 

 

OUR MISSION

EarthxFilm showcases films and emerging media that explore conservation, climate change, and the environment while honoring the heroes working to protect our planet. Our mission is to turn awareness into action, through art and media. We achieve our goals by partnering with top environmental, film and entertainment organizations across the globe.
