2014 - 5C Environmental Justice Film Festival

Co-sponsored by the SIO, Religious Studies department, Asian Studies department, EA, and ECO, this series showcased three films over the course of the spring semester. Each film was followed by a brief discussion on environmental justice. Jesse Meisler-Abramson (PZ Sustainability) led a discussion on There Once Was an Island and Professor Rick Hazlett (PO EA) led a discussion on Promised Land.

2011 - People, Places, Spaces
People, Places, Spaces explores how the world's environmental problems unjustly affect communities around the United States and around the world. The dynamic stories, communities, and places featured in this film series portray a world full of complex social and environmental circumstances and show how communities have rallied together to demand a truly sustainable, just, healthy future for all.

2010 - ROOTED: Food and Farming Film Festival
ROOTED: Food and Farming Film Festival features films that pose questions about our food system - how and where food is grown, transported, prepared, and disposed of in today's modern society. This series seeks to engage the campus and wider Claremont community in dialogs about food and what it will take to develop a sustainable, healthy, community-based food system.
