One Movie. One Planet. One Movement. One Day.

...500+ theaters around the world…

On March 26th, 2020, Fantastic Fungi Day is bringing the fungi kingdom and all of its inspiration and beauty above ground for a one-of-a-kind immersive consciousness-shifting screening event that will interconnect global communities as we mirror the wisdom of the underground mycelium network and connect with one another.

Fantastic Fungi will screen in 500+ venues across the globe including a not to be missed conversation with award-winning Director Louie Schwartzberg, renowned Mycologist Paul Stamets and other luminary special guests. Screenings in host towns and cities include New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Paris, Sydney, Melbourne, Sao Paulo, Panama City, Mexico City, Vancouver, Toronto, Tokyo, and many more.

Now is the time to come together as one on March 26th and join Louie Schwartzberg, Paul Stamets and others as we honor our partner in the world beneath us and begin to bring that which lies below ground … above ground.

Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offer us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic, and environmental challenges.

“Louie Schwartzberg’s lightly informative, delightfully kooky documentary, “Fantastic Fungi,” offers nothing less than a model for planetary survival.” ~ Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times
“Gorgeous photography! Time-lapse sequences of mushrooms blossoming forth could pass for studies of exotic flowers growing on another planet.” ~ Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal
“Schwartzberg’s film quickly proves to be one of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs.” ~ Matt Fagerholm, RogerEbert.com
“A must see for anyone interested in life, death and the pursuit of the planet’s well-being.” ~ David Carpenter, Forbes
