One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest

The One Earth Young Filmmakers Contest screened nine first place winners on March 7, at the Gene Siskel Film Center, in Chicago. A jury of filmmakers and environmental activists chose these top films from 196 submissions, but scores are always very tight.

In this virtual event, we feature the nine, short, Honorable Mention winning films (from elementary school to college level), which were just a hair's breadth away from first place.

As an added bonus, submit your questions via live chat on Zoom in a discussion with the filmmakers, facilitated by Young Filmmakers Contest Founding Director Sue Crothers.

Young Filmmakers and their short films:

--Grady Roderweiss-O’Brien “The Impossible Way” (4 min)

--Samantha Older “The Shortage of Helium” (3.5 min)

--Filmmakers not present “Green Gone” (3 min)

--Chloe Chin “Remember” (3 min)
