Have you ever wondered about Australia’s endangered coral reef, how to reduce plastic consumption or make your home more environmentally fit? Earth day is right around the corner! This year the EARTHxFilm festival, part of the world’s largest environmental expo EarthX, will be partially sponsored by KD Conservatory as students, staff and graduates celebrate the days festivities at Fair Park.
“The goal is to encourage others to not only learn about making environmental films, but how to be environmentally conscious,” said Dennis Bishop, KD Film Chair and Film Education and Development Consultant for EARTHxFilm. “We’ve created more than a film festival here; it’s an initiative, a creative project that will hopefully impact others and the earth in a positive way. I am honored to be a part of it.”
The festival will include interactive filmmaking workshops where students can explore the inner workings of making a film with a purpose and engage with professional filmmakers while using state-of-the-art camera, sound and lighting equipment.
“KD Conservatory and EARTHxFilm is a great partnership,” KD Conservatory CEO, Kathy Tyner said. “KD supports filmmakers, arts and the environment, this new program at Earth Day Texas fits really well with what we believe in.”
