EarthX Film Festival: A Festival For Our Future

By Annalise Combs
We have a tremendously diverse and exciting lineup of films that take you around the world to see what is happening on the environmental front. The films can be breathtaking, exhilarating, inspirational and beautiful. We will be honest: Sometimes they don’t paint a pretty picture, as global temperatures continue to climb, fragile habitats continue to be destroyed and the struggle for environmental justice is an uphill climb. That being said, there is a wide and growing array of brave women and men who are working to counter and correct this, and we are thrilled to share their stories with you here at EarthxFilm.
We are a relatively new film festival, but the work we are focusing on has been ongoing for decades, really dating back to the first Earth Day in 1970. We are also grateful to be working with EarthX to gather together vast legions of people who believe that the right to clean air and clean water is a fundamental one. We also believe that it is ever imperative to speak this truth to the politicians and business leaders who make so many of the decisions that affect our everyday.
As we look to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day April 22, 2020, we know that this is the most important work we could be doing, and are enormously and ever grateful to you, the storytellers and the audience, for turning out for this crucial event. Thank you for being a part of this. We hope you leave inspired and motivated to be part of the changes that can lead to a better life on this planet for all of us and all of Earth’s creatures.
