Description

Calumet College of St. Joseph once again is proud to be a participant in the One Earth Film Festival. Now in its eighth year, it is the Midwest’s premier environmental film festival and CCSJ is the only venue in Indiana. The selected documentary by Jordan Osmond and Antoinette Wilson, Living the Change, explores solutions to the global crises we face today—solutions any of us can implement—through the inspiring stories of people pioneering change in their own lives and in their communities in order to live in a sustainable and regenerative way. From forest gardens to composting toilets, community-supported agriculture to timebanking, Living the Change offers solutions being used now that we can employ to combat climate change today.

The pre-festival screening will be held on Thursday, Feb. 21st at 7:00 pm at the College (2400 New York Avenue, Whiting, IN) and will be followed by post film discussion. The event is free but seating is limited and reservations are strongly suggested. Visit oneearthfilmfest.org to reserve tickets.

The One Earth Film Festival runs March 1-10, 2019 and the theme is “All In”. As we see the effects of climate change on our planet, it’s time to go ALL IN to spark action, grow hope and build community resilience. Choose from 28 top documentaries for all ages on conservation, climate change, food waste, and more at 67 screenings throughout the Chicago region.

For more information on the Feb. 21st screening, please contact Linda Gajewski, lgajewski@ccsj.edu.
