    This film fest pulls people together and connects you with a film right in your neighborhood. The fact films were chosen with such care and gives audiences an opportunity to interact afterward makes this experience a true gift to all that partake.

    I’ve been to the fest three years now, it’s incredible! Thoughtfully designed to for people to learn, be inspired and take action small ways and big.

    My Dad was a Colorado farmer and passed on March 4, 2008. He always valued the land he farmed, and taught us to “love the earth”—-by his example. The best way to teach!!
