This year, the G2 Gallery’s annual Green Earth Film Festival will be held at the Mayer Theater at Loyola Marymount University (LMU). From among over 1600+ submissions from around the world and 140 semi-finalists, the films in the festival are selected for their award-winning portrayal of environmental issues. The works submitted include eco-conscious documentaries, narratives, short films, and features. Fascinating and engaging panel discussions will take place after the films.
The net proceeds from all film festival activities are donated to environmental charities.
The cost for the event is $10 per day if purchased on-line, and an additional on-line processing fee.
The schedule is as follows, with Dr. Eric Strauss, Exec Director of the LMU Center for Urban Resilience (CURes) moderating the panel discussions each day:
