Event Information



Belmont World Film's 12th Annual Family Festival

Various countries | 90 min. | English and a small amount of German with English subtitles | New England premiere

Environmentally-themed films that are as educational as they are entertaining. The films will be followed by an interactive activity led by "e" inc., as well as a discussion with 9-year-old Alice Van Evera from Lexington, who was so inspired by one of the films in the program that she started a group that was instrumental in getting a regulation banning solar panels on her town’s buildings overturned. 

Films include:

The Dam Keeper: a multi-award winning animated film by former Pixar artists Robert Kondo and Dice Tsutsumi about a pig who keeps the sails on a large windmill dam moving in order to keep pollution out of the desolate town that is the lone survivor of an environmental disaster.

Hedgehogs and the City: a multi-award winning animated film from Latvia by Ēvalds Lācisfrom about two hedgehogs and their animal friends who learn to make money in order to return the city to the countryside.

Tant de Foret, a visually stunning animated film from France by Burku Sancur and Gregory Goden that speaks of the irony that newspapers warn us about deforestation even though they are made of paper themselves.

Sticky, an animated film from Australia by Jilli Rose that tells the astonishing true environmental story of the return of the stick insects population to Australia after their supposed extinction.

Young Voices for the Planet, two films about youths from all over the world who are making a difference for the environment, including Plant for the Planet, about a 9 year-old boy from Germany who has helped plant more than a billion trees in Germany and around the world, and Olivia's Birds and the Oil Spill, about an 11-year old girl's deep connection with the natural world, in particular, with the Gulf of Mexico, and how her love of birds drove her to create 500 bird paintings to raise $200,000 for Audubon's efforts to rescue birds after the BP Oil spill.

Recommended for age 4-12.

Co-presented by “e” Inc.
