About this Event

“The eyes of all future generations are upon you.” -Greta Thunberg

For the last eight years, our eyes have been upon the incredible films of motivated and inspired young people from ages 8–25. We have offered them the opportunity to research, produce, and show their original films as part of our Young Filmmakers Contest. We invite you to join us at the premier screenings of the winning films, to be inspired by their creativity, and to learn more about the non-profit organizations that will benefit from matching grants the winners receive. Founding Director of the One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest Sue Crothers will announce the winners. Also, learn about local action and advocacy opportunities from the Chicago Youth Alliance for Climate Action, and from young filmmaker Patrick Thomas Keen of Columbia College.

Arrive by 10:30 a.m. to avoid lines, find best seats, and collect your free gourmet coffee or hot chocolate and popcorn from concessions. Reserve free tickets above. ADA compliant accessible venue. Families with children, as well as teens and young adults are encouraged to attend.

In an effort to reduce waste, we would like our guests to consider bringing reusable drink containers for coffee, hot chocolate, or water (compostable cups will also be available).

Central location is also easily accessible by elevated train and buses.

Validated parking is available at the InterPark Self-Park at 20 E. Randolph, which is across the street from Macy's (there's also an entrance on Wabash near the corner of Randolph). Parking is $20 for 16 hours with a validation ticket, which can be obtained from the box office.

Or try the app SpotHero to locate additional discounted parking.

Become a One Earth Film Festival member and be a part of our growing movement! Memberships start at $15 for students and seniors and go up from there (monthly payment options available).
