Our Mission Statement
Green Planet Films is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated first in 2003 in California, and in 2019 moved our domicile to Connecticut. We advocate environmental education, with an emphasis on film, to an evolving global and local community audiences. We connect and engage viewers with filmmakers dedicated to documenting the precarious relationships between nature and humanity. We view the need for humanity to meaningfully engage with its living environment has reached a tipping point. We support this advocacy by developing and maintaining a media library for distribution to educational and public institutions, non-profits, businesses and individuals. Our perspective on environmental ecology, also includes human ecology. o
To supplement this effort, we maintain a network of subject matter experts among film producers, scientists, academics, as well as other distributors who share a common aspiration to identify, produce and share discoveries in nature and humanity. Sample topics include deforestation, water resources, ocean conservation, sustainable fishing, renewable energies, climate change and other issues that affect humanity in the context of itself and nature.
In 2021 we are launching a new program called 'Green Planet Films Presents', where we will host international green film festivals and others to screen their award winners and audience favorites to our Southern Connecticut community.
