One Earth Film Festival

Here at Hotel Felix, we are happy to see that the One Earth Film Festival is returning to Chicago from March 3-13 for the fifth year in a row.

The One Earth Film Festival will be screening a variety of environmentally focused films that aim to help viewers gain a better understanding of climate change and how humans have the power to help combat it.

Some of the screenings include “Minimalism: A Documentary About Important Things” and “Before the Flood,” which features Leonardo DiCaprio. 12 filmmakers will also be in attendance this year.
