Our Heritage, Our Planet Film Week

Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month following Indigenous People’s Day by participating in Hispanic Access Foundation’s Our Heritage, Our Planet Film Week: An annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of Latino, Black, Indigenous, and people of color’s voices and experiences in connection to our heritage and our planet – uplifting the nexus between our communities and the lands, nature, waterways, and ocean we all call home.

For the 3rd year in a row, Our Heritage, Our Planet Film Week is building a space where creatives, filmmakers, climate justice advocates, and others working on environmental topics can come, showcase, and celebrate, the stories of Latino, Black, Indigenous and other people of color in connection to Our Heritage and Our Planet – the lands, nature, waterways, and oceans we all call home. Our intention is to create and curate a space that celebrates their work, uplifts the common threads of our experiences, and provides additional opportunities for funds, employment, education, advocacy, and exposure for aspiring filmmakers of the global majority.

The festival is 100% virtual, free to attend for all, and will feature interactive discussions between artists, communities, and decision-makers on environmental topics.
