LAFF sports green shorts

Festival to celebrate Live Earth Day

Westwood Village will soon be getting a little greener, as the Los Angeles Film Festival has announced its plans for Live Earth Day, which will take place Sunday.

Live Earth Day: A Celebration of Earth will feature 50 short films as part of the SOS campaign that aims to “create a series of education and compelling short films that highlight the problems of the global climate crisis.”

The selected shorts come from feature film directors, animators and documentarians among others, and include works from Madonna, Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck. The festival, which opens Thursday, will screen the films multiple times throughout the daylong event.

In addition to their cinematic endeavors, the SOS campaign is behind the upcoming Live Earth: The Concerts for a Climate in Crisis series, which will take place next month.
