The 2017 Earth Port Film Festival presents short films that tell engaging and inspiring stories of people and communities around the world taking action to address the environmental challenges facing the Earth today in a variety of genres — animation, documentary, music video — from the US, UK, Belgium and Switzerland, created by youth and adult filmmakers.
The festival, now in its 6th year, will screen eleven films ranging from 3 to 15 minutes. This year’s lineup includes stories of sea nomads in Indonesia, soil-restoring cattle ranchers, a passionate life-long non-violent activist, a sand sculptor creating his ephemeral art, a Belgian beekeeper and much more.

NOTE: Join the Earth Port Film Festival for a pre-show reception from 4:30-5:30PM at Merrohawke Nature School, 56R Merrimac Street. For more details on location, click here.
