The Strawberry Earth Film Festival combines a few of our favorite summery things and combines them into one fabulous weekend long event taking place this June.
Each year this festival screens the very best films and documentaries about our planet. It also plays host to inspirational speakers on environmental issues.
Taking place just ahead of World Environment Day, on June 3rd & 4th, Strawberry Earth will screen movies like The Solar Taxi, and Un Monde Pour Soi (A World Of One’s Own) in Amsterdam. The Strawberry Earth Film Festival is also the venue for the European premier of Force of Nature: The David Suzike Movie.
But it’s not just about movies; the festival is a platform for creative and green organisations devoted to art, design, fashion, food and innovation. You can visit the Etsy craft shop, see Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio’s photos from the amazing book Hungry Planet, pose a question to De Daktokters – the men behind ABC Amsterdam’s green roof – or find out how you can design and print your own 3D designs out of biodegradable plastic with the Ultimaker.
