About the Event:
This year the EarthxFilm Festival continues its mission to showcase Films and Emerging Media that Explore Science, Conservation, Climate Change, and the Environment while honoring the heroes working to protect our planet. EarthxFilm aims to turn awareness into action through education, art, and media.
Opening Night for EarthxFilm will be highlighted with a Drive-In presentation of Sally Aitken’s Sundance favorite Playing with Sharks, about the charismatic and groundbreaking diver Valerie Taylor.
Closing Night will feature the world premiere virtual presentation of Clark Johnson’s Percy vs. Goliath, starring Christopher Walken, Adam Beach, Christina Ricci, and Zach Braff. Executive Produced by NBA champion Dwight Howard, this true-life story tells of a farmer taking on a multi-national corporation over the impact of GMOs on his livelihood.
Additional film highlights will include an evening of Texas-focused films featuring EarthxFilm alum Ben Masters’ American Ocelot and Nicol Ragland’s Trans Pecos.
The 2021 EarthxFilm Festival actively supports filmmakers through the payment of screenings fees and facilitating audience donations to their causes. In addition, Cash Prizes totaling $25,000 will be awarded to filmmakers and through impact grants to environmental organizations showcased in the films.Back to the event calendar
