The G2 Green Earth Film Festival is a place for filmmakers of all experience levels—from seasoned industry professionals to passionate students— to come together and share, screen and discuss their eco-conscious films with likeminded individuals. We believe in the power of film to start conversations and effect positive change in the environment, and G2 Green Earth strives to uphold that idea through high-quality screenings, fascinating panel discussions and meaningful partnerships with nonprofit organizations throughout the festival.
The G2 Green Earth Film Festival has grown immensely from its inaugural year in 2013. It began with a vision that is being more fully realized each year, with 2016’s festival boasting more than 500 people in attendance, over $1000 raised in donations for nonprofit partner organizations, and gave cash prizes for the best films, as chosen by a prestigious jury.
The festival has featured award-winning critical darlings, local student films, popular movies on Netflix, powerful documentaries produced by Robert Redford and Jeremy Irons, and many other profoundly important environmental works from all over the world. Its list of sponsors, partners and panelists has grown each year, all in the service of creating a dialogue within an entertaining yet eco-minded space.
This year The G2 Green Earth Film Festival will expand its outreach and vision by partnering with Loyola Marymount University's faculty and students from the School of Film and Television and the Center for Urban Resilience (CURes) program.
