On March 6, 7, & 8th Green Community Connections hosted 40 inspirational films at 30 different locations across the city as part of their 4th annual One Earth Film Festival.
This year, ICA GreenRise held two different viewings during the fest. The morning session featured No Land No Food No Life and was held in partnership with Oxfam America and as an International Women's Day event. The film was followed by a panel and rich discussion with Oxfam America Advocacy Advisor Adam Olsonas well as Shift Founder and Chief Executive Officer Tricia Martinez.The afternoon viewing was of Edible City and held in conjunction with animalia project and included a panel discussion, tours of ICA GreenRise and micro-workshops on urban gardening.
The festival was a great success and the City of Chicago is asking attendees to vote for their favorite movie so it can be shown in celebration of Earth Day this April.
