Sunday, Oct. 22: Where Passion Meets Purpose
The closing night evening for the EarthX Film & Music Festival will take place at the beautiful Kessler Theater in the heart of historic Oak Cliff. At 5:30 p.m., the theater will open for seat selection. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., a series of short films will be screened that highlight stories of characters that not only find purpose in the outdoors but strive to share that opportunity with others. Themes of conservation, food sovereignty and intersectionality will also be discussed both on screen and in thoughtful panel conversations. Films included are Well Worn Life, The Ghost Rainforest, 4DWN, Miles to Go and The Mud on Their Hands.
The evening will also feature an intimate performance from Danielle Ponder, a rising R&B/soul singer who left her career as a New York public defender to pursue her calling in music. The closing night after party will be held at The Wild Detectives and will feature music by DJ Elkin Pautt.
