Tales from Planet Earth Film Festival

Madison

Our theme for this edition is Futures. We are, at present, in a moment of reawakening to questions of time — across spans of ecological, evolutionary, and human history. These questions arise not from a nostalgia for the past, but from a sense of urgency about the future. The reality of climate change and the ever-increasing speed at which we are consuming resources beckon us to pause and bear witness to the ways past and present modes of living have intentionally and inadvertently contributed to different futures of the planet. You will find here tales, past and present, hopeful and cautionary, real and fictional. From sci-fi classics to a retrospective of Werner Herzog's visionary films to work-in-progress screenings with environmental filmmakers, get ready for what we are sure will be an exciting weekend! Free and open to the public.
