“We are very lucky. The teams at EarthX, EarthxFilm, EarthXR and EDU are working harder than ever. The shift from a physical festival to a reimagined virtual/online festival actually has empowered us. We have accelerated our plans to place films and filmmakers where they need to be to create the maximum positive change possible. We’ve been pleasantly surprised how positive our storytellers have embraced this pivot and now look forward to showcasing amazing and powerful stories at a time when we need them the most in the safest way possible.” – Michael Cain, EarthXFilm
