EarthxFilm presents THE RIVER AND THE WALL with special guest, Director Ben Masters, in attendance for a Q&A after the film.

Tue, November 12, 2019 from 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM at the Texas Theater in Dallas

Masters’ THE RIVER AND THE WALL follows five friends on an immersive adventure through the unknown wilds of the Texas borderlands as they travel 1200 miles from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico on horses, mountain bikes, and canoes. Inspired by the threat of new border wall construction looms ahead, and what he saw as the urgency of documenting the last remaining wilderness in Texas, Masters recruited NatGeo Explorer Filipe DeAndrade, ornithologist Heather Mackey, river guide Austin Alvarado, and conservationist Jay Kleberg to join him on a two-and-a-half-month journey down 1,200 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border.

The group initially set out to document the borderlands and explore the potential impacts of a wall on the natural environment, but as the wilderness gives way to the more populated and heavily trafficked Lower Rio Grande Valley, they come face-to-face with the human side of the immigration debate and enter uncharted emotional waters.

EarthX Celebrates Half Earth Day – Halfway to the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day

The Second Annual Half Earth Day Kicks Off the Six-month Countdown to

Earthx2020 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum

EarthX will celebrate Half Earth Day at the Frontiers of Flight Museum on Tuesday, October 22 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., marking the year’s halfway point to the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day.

“This Half Earth Day is special because we’re starting the countdown to the 50th anniversary of Earth Day next April,” said Tony Keane, chief executive officer of EarthX. “The first Earth Day in 1970 launched an environmental movement that has continued growing for nearly half a century. One of our goals is to extend our traditionally once-annual observance into year-round mindfulness and action towards a more sustainable future, which we hope will keep Earth Day thriving for another 50 years to come.”

The free celebration will feature space ambassador Anousheh Ansari, CEO of XPRIZE Foundation, which leads incentive competitions to solve humanity’s grand challenges. As the first female private space explorer, Ansari spent 11 days on the International Space Station, and will deliver a compelling presentation about her transformative experience. This month also marks the 15th anniversary of the Ansari XPRIZE, a $10 million dollar prize awarded for Paul Allen’s SpaceShipOne reusable rocket, which inspired commercial spaceflight. A life-size replica of SpaceShipOne will be unveiled along with Ansari’s spacesuit at Half Earth Day for an ongoing exhibit at the Frontiers of Flight Museum.

Ken McQueen, the new Region 6 EPA Administrator and former New Mexico Secretary for Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources, will speak; and Leilani Münter of the Discovery Channel's "Planet Green" will serve as emcee. Münter is known as a vegan hippie chick with a racecar, a Sports Illustrated Top 10 Female Driver, and the #1 Eco Athlete in the world.

At 7:30 p.m., Half Earth Day will feature a screening of the film SEA OF SHADOWS, a riveting new documentary with the intensity of a Hollywood thriller from National Geographic Documentary Films that won the Sundance Audience Award. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with investigative journalist and television host Carlos Loret de Mola, who is featured in and helped inspire the film. SEA OF SHADOWS follows a team of dedicated scientists, high-tech conservationists, investigative journalists, and undercover agents, as well as the Mexican Navy, as they put their lives on the line to save the last remaining vaquita porpoises. Mexican drug cartels and Chinese traffickers have joined forces to poach rare totoaba fish in the Sea of Cortez using methods that threaten to destroy marine life in the region, including the elusive and endangered vaquita.

Half Earth Day will begin at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 22 at the Frontiers of Flight Museum located at 6911 Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. To reserve your free spot for EarthX’s Half Earth Day celebration, visit Half Earth Day

EarthxFilm has partnered to create immersive experiences in New York during Climate Week NYC, which is run in coordination with the United Nations and the City of New York. From September 20-23, Our Village, Community Corner will feature curated VR content from EarthxFilm at the Ford Foundation and Helen Mills Theater, while interactive content at Arcadia Earth will include 360-degree film experiences from Underwater Earth, an EarthxFilm partner, as well as The Wild Immersion, endorsed by Jane Goodall, which screened at EarthxInteractive 2019. 

Additionally, EarthxFilm has curated the content that will screen at the UN SDG Action Zone, a space built inside the UN grounds during the General Assembly to promote and accelerate transformative action on the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. EarthxFilm is also working with Ian Urbina, New York Times Bestselling Author of Outlaw Ocean for Climate Week. 

“We started EarthxInteractive to cultivate and broaden the reach of the interactive experiences being developed to highlight the beauty and plight of our planet,” said Tiffany Kieran, director of interactive programming and partnerships for EarthxFilm. “Since our event in Dallas last spring, we’ve been tapped to curate content for both national and international audiences like those at New York Climate Week, bringing an unprecedented level of experiential intimacy to help others connect with the Earth, and often igniting the needed spark to inspire change.”

Arcadia Earth is a large-scale multi-sensory journey through underwater worlds, fantasy lands, and inspirational art installations. A 15-room exhibition created by experiential artist Valentino Vettori, it explores the plight of our planet through human scale art installations and the futuristic lens of augmented and virtual reality. EarthxFilm connected Arcadia Earth with Underwater Earth, which provided 360 films, helped with sponsors and advised on the set-up of the exhibit.

“Everyone talks about climate change in a negative way, but who wants to hear that we’re all going to die?” asked Vettori. “This installation aims to inspire and engage in a more uplifting way that reminds us what we have and what we can do to change the way things are going – eliminate singe-use plastic, eat less meat, waste less food, and shop more responsibly.”

EarthxInteractive, a subdivision of EarthxFilm, is dedicated to immersive storytelling designed to raise awareness for global environmental issues. Held annually during EarthX, it hosts the world’s largest lineup of eco-interactive programming, presenting scores of virtual, augmented and mixed reality experiences, exhibits and workshops from top creators, environmental organizations and technology partners. 

Earthx2019 brought together more than 177,000 concerned environmental citizens, educators, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and thought leaders to celebrate global sustainability. The ninth annual EarthX event was the world’s largest gathering to positively discuss achievable solutions for environmental change. Earthx2020 will be held April 22 – 26, 2020 in Dallas.

EarthX hosted an Environmental Legislative Review at Entercom with environmental leaders that have been following and working on this year’s Texas Legislative Session. EarthX offers the Legislative Reviews as a platform since gaining support for legislation during sessions, which are held only once every two years, can be challenging.

“What came out of this session was really interesting,” said panelist Karen Hadden, executive director of the SEED Coalition. “We were able and really happy to block the bad radioactive waste bills all the way through, and it took a lot of work. Every single day, people were going to the calendar’s committee, making sure it didn’t come up or something didn’t get snuck in. And we were really, really happy. We thought, ‘Gosh, we’ve won.’”

In an effort to maximize preparedness for addressing important environmental issues in Texas, EarthX presented the panel in partnership with Public Citizen, Texas Electric Transportation Resources Alliance, Environmental Defense Fund, SEED Coalition, Texas Landowners for Eminent Domain Reform, Texas PIRG, and Texas Campaign for the Environment. Reed Sternberg, EarthX Central Texas representative and host of the “Shades of Green” environmental podcast, led the discussion with panelists that included Hadden; Bay Scoggin, TexPIRG director, The Texas Public Interest Research Group; Rita Beving, Texas Landowners for Eminent Domain Reform; and Tom “Smitty” Smith, executive director, Texas Electric Transportation Resources Alliance.

Discussion covered what was and was not accomplished with environmental legislation during the session, with a close eye on overall results and ways to take action now on topics like fracking and wastewater, clean air, eminent domain, nuclear waste disposal, energy efficiency, and electric vehicles, to name a few. One pressing issue that came up in connection with cities also supporting progress was lead in drinking water.

“Right now, the standard, which the states don’t even have to comply with, is 15 times what it should be,” said Scoggin. “Dallas, to its credit, has remediated and fixed all the instances that it found of contamination above the standard. It didn’t have to do that, but it did. That’s step one. Step two is to fix all the contamination in between recommended levels and our unfortunately high EPA standard. A lot of the issues that we see do have some sort of social justice aspect. This isn’t one of them. It’s in rich neighborhoods, it’s in poor neighborhoods. It’s everywhere.”

Panelists also fielded questions on other state environmental concerns at the event, which was streamed live on Facebook and recorded. A second panel was also hosted in Austin.

“We encourage activism, and panels like this help lower the barriers others see to getting involved,” added Tony Keane, chief executive officer of EarthX. “These aren’t issues affecting other places exclusively – it’s here in our state too, and it’s up to us to help correct the course.” 

Earthx2019 brought together more than 177,000 for three days of exhibitions, a film festival, music, entertainment, learning experiences, discussions, forums, and conferences. Earthx2020 will be held           April 24 – 26, 2020 in Dallas.

EarthX, is celebrating reducing the use of a million plastic straws, a significant milestone in the Strike Out Straws campaign that was launched at EarthX 2018 to eliminate the proliferation of single-use plastic straws. The Strike Out Straws movement has progressed through a combination of initiatives and with pledges from Studio Movie Grill and support from paper straw distributor, CircleTerra.

After EarthxFilm screened the film STRAWS at the corporate office of Studio Movie Grill, the chain chose to remove straws, except by request, from waters served to guests. Successful testing locally led the chain to remove single use plastic straws for waters chain-wide. The first month implemented, the effort saved 350,000 straws, and is projected to result in a savings of 4.2 million plastic straws and $27,000 annually.

“We are excited to align with EarthX in their effort to eliminate plastic straws and in support of the Strike Out Straws initiative,” added Janet Michaels, director of purchasing for Studio Movie Grill. “In doing so, we are grateful to be able to make a difference for our environment, while also directly improving our bottom line.”

Once discarded, single-use plastic straws, require more than 200 years to break down, adding to plastic debris in landfills. “This is just the beginning,” said Michael Cain, president and co-founder of EarthxFilm. “EarthX will continue to create awareness and encourage those around us to help make a significant impact on the environment.” 

As Strike Out Straws continues towards its next million plastic straws saved, EarthX is also celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020 by working toward a goal of no single-use plastic and styrofoam to-go containers. Currently, it’s encouraging diners to Go NOCO Loco! by saying NO to plastic and Styrofoam Containers during DFW Restaurant Week running through September 1. 

“Studio Movie Grill is a great example of how slight changes can lead to significant impacts,” continued Cain. “They weren’t in a position to say, ‘no more plastic straws ever’, but they were willing to say, ‘what if we just tried this one thing?’ This not only helped us reach the one million straws milestone, but the theater chain is also expecting to have reduced the use of single use plastic straws by 2.45 million by year-end. It’s one way EarthX is helping answer the SOS from our planet.”

CircleTerra owner Kelly Freeman, who serves on EarthX’s SOS Advisory Council, added, “More and more North Texas businesses are ready to make the change from single use plastic straws. It is exciting and humbling to be a part of the SOS movement.” 

CircleTerra also made a generous donation of biodegradable paper straws, complementing the 200,000 paper straws EarthX committed for DFW Restaurant Week, during EarthX, and at its year-round events. In addition to Freeman, the SOS Advisory Council includes Christian Harper of the City of Fort Worth, Lindsey McNeny from Windows to the Wild, and VanDella Menifee, local educator and community activist. Linda Booker, whose film STRAWS inspired the campaign, also serves on the Council.

Some of the local Dallas businesses that took the EarthX Pledge to Strike Out Straws include: 

Al Biernat's, Alinea, Asian Mint, Cindy’s Deli, Embassy Suites Denton, Houlihans Denton, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek, Snappy Salads, The Keg Steakhouse, and The Texas Theatre

Businesses and indivduals may join in the campaign and take the pledge at EarthX.org. More information on partnering with EarthX as well as ideas on how to reduce use of straws or plastic packagingis also available at Strike Out Straws or Go NOCO Loco!

Future 500 Summit at EarthX Explores Bold Solution

EarthX, the world’s largest environmental festival, recently hosted the fifth Future 500 Summit, which brought top executives together with environmental advocates to discuss how best to mobilize business as a force for good. The Summit is the nation’s lead gathering dedicated to stakeholder engagement, the practice of building skills and relationships that reduce risk, increase common ground, and advance social purpose.

“We ask our delegates to leave their ‘talking points at the door,’ which helps create an atmosphere of trust,” said Erik Wohlgemuth, chief operating officer of Future 500. “This in turn yields unconventional alliances and creative solutions to tough issues, such as climate change.” 

The event operates under strict confidentiality rules. Delegates can, and do, speak candidly, opening up new approaches, solutions, and relationships that might not otherwise surface. One recent participant described it as a “veritable gold mine” of insights and ideas for companies and nonprofits working to tackle climate, forest, and ocean challenges.

Speakers and presenters on the stage at this year’s Future 500 Summit at EarthX included Trammell S. Crow, founder of EarthX; Tony Keane, chief executive officer of EarthX; Bill Shireman, president and chief executive officer of Future 500; and Erik Wohlgemuth. 

In panels and other sessions, leaders from opposite ends of the spectrum such as, Exxon Mobil Corporation and Washington Businesses for Climate Action, discussed carbon solutions. A conversation on the future of plastic included a senior Greenpeace campaigner and an executive from Nestle. Meanwhile, another session uncovered insights into what makes “the other side” tick. The Summit closed with a dynamic session exploring the new trend of major brands taking clear public stands on hot-button social issues.

“We work with Future 500 to build a broader capacity for collective action,” added Keane. “The world’s oceans, forests, and climate systems are no longer just ‘challenged.’ In many places, they’re in crisis. Businesses, policy makers, and the public at large all have a role to play in stopping and reversing the damage.”

The next EarthxFuture 500 Summit will be held in Dallas, April 23 – 24, 2020. Prospective delegates may request an invitation via future500.org/summit

Kifaru

Join EarthxFilm for a Movie Monday screening of KIFARU with Director David Hambridge.

 

In Kenya’s Ol Pejeta Conservancy, rangers devote their lives to caring for and protecting Sudan, the last male white rhino, along with Sudan’s daughter and granddaughter. It’s a privilege and duty they take seriously, no matter how fruitless it can seem. 

Kifaru follows two young recruits over their first four years on the job as they experience the heartbreak and joy of caring for animals whose fate appears sealed. “Why do we fight and plunder the world until nothing is left?” one ranger asks. “The harder question to answer is, why do we give everything to a cause that seems so hopeless?” This film, which lets viewers experience extinction in real time, helps answer that. 

David Hambridge is an Emmy-nominated cinematographer, commercial director and documentary filmmaker based in the U.S. Kifaru is his first feature-length documentary as a director.

Special thanks to our Community Partners, including Planet Rhino (planetrhino.tcu.edu), Fossil Rim Wildlife Center (fossilrim.org), and the Dallas Zoo (www.dallaszoo.org).
