Film has become the predominant form of communication in the modern world.
The Fair Earth Foundation uses film as a tool for individuals and communities to raise awareness of the issues important to them, the stories that would not otherwise be told, so that we can all understand what it is that is important to people. We want to give a voice to those that need to be heard, and facilitate an understanding that inspires action.
We want to facilitate this process through training in technique and the use of equipment, provision of resources and funding where needed and by providing a platform on which the films can be shown.
"Ordinary Lives" and "Intelligent Conversations" provide platforms for Individuals and communities to express the issues of most concern to them to a global audience, and raise awareness of their perspective; it is naive to come to any decision that doesn't embrace all perspectives. Both of these series of films are at the very heart of what we are trying to do,
The London Eco Film Festival is a key action of the Fair Earth Foundation, a platform to engage and inspire. It is designed to inform us and our partners to better formulate goals and strategies that are intelligent, current and necessary.
In November 2019, in collaboration with Rich Mix and The Mighty Roar, we put together an International Eco Film Festival which saw us receive over 3000 films from more than 120 countries. The 2020 London Eco Film Festival is now open for film and photography submissions.
We want to share the films that we have created as well as the finalists and winners from the London Eco Film Festival. We want you to explore global issues from your and/or your communities' perspectives.
If you have a film in mind that you feel is important to you and your local community and you do not have the capacity to make it, please let us know and we can discuss ways of helping you.
As part of our capacity building of budding film makers, we offer several film courses, we would love to hear from you if you'd like to learn!
We are building an online, free to watch, catalogue of films that are both inspirational and to be used as an educational resource. If you know of a film that you think we should be showcasing, please let us us know.
We are proud of our films, please enjoy!
**Validation! We are totally aware of the dangers of fake material and are developing criteria to offer some form of validation to any films shown on our site, so people can trust what they are watching to be authentic. Watch this space.
