The Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival has a new direction!
Between 2017–2023, the nonprofit Festival showcased hundreds of exceptional new short and feature-length environmental and nature films, presented Q&As with filmmakers and policy makers, and offered hands-on youth workshops. The event grew from a weekend-long film festival to a 10-day juried event showing new American and international films in a wide variety of genres; a student film competition; and film awards in multiple categories. We also hosted exciting special film events and created a popular summer family film series.
But our mission and work are evolving. We’ve decided to focus solely on youth programs going forward — and to expand beyond film to include BOOKS. The Festival’s new d/b/a name — One Little Earth — reflects this exciting new mission.
One Little Earth will concentrate on supporting children’s books, films, and programs that inspire a love of nature. We’ll also showcase the talented authors, filmmakers, and nonprofit leaders who create memorable nature-focused art and programs for young people.
In the next few blog posts we’ll introduce you to the people who’ll be serving on One Little Earth’s board and fill you in on exciting projects we’ve already lined up.
Many thanks to our talented team at Masters Group Design — Benjamin Brown and Vicki Gray-Wolfe — for designing One Little Earth’s logo and new website.
