New Film Fest Looks For Laughs in Selflessness

New Film Fest Looks For Laughs in Selflessness

By now you must think we’ve gone film festival crazy. Yet there’s good news for those of us with short attention spans and big hearts: The EarthDance International Film Festival is coming to town!

Presented by the Oakland Museum of California, The EarthDance Film Festival presents a compilation of captivating short comedies, documentaries, animated and adventure films from around the world. Each of the films—which range in length from 30 minutes to 30 seconds—hail from far flung locales that include India, Britain, Canada, Japan and Germany—as well as a few cut right here in America. Films bring messages of hope, inspiration, action, innovation and laughter. The screenings are held in conjunction with Hawai’i Conservation Week.

The subject matter spans stories that include a business owner who earned a lot of green by going green, to architects who fashion the most unsuspecting structures out of sustainable material; there are introspections with “green” athletes and segments with comedians who find fodder in the green trend. Within the two, 90-minute blocks of entertainment, there will certainly be something to appease everyone.

The screenings will be held during “Hawaii Conservation Week” at UH Manoa’s Art Auditorium. The cost: FREE! Dates: Sunday, July 26 at 3 p.m. and Saturday, August 1 at 7 p.m.

One small step… two fun-filled days of entertaining new ideas and awareness!
