FARGO, N.D. (MARCH 24, 2021) – Educators throughout North Dakota can receive a free All-Access Pass to the upcoming North Dakota Environmental Rights Film Festival for use in classroom or other educational settings. The All-Access pass provides access to over 40 films from 13 countries, filmmaker Q&As, and panel discussions. Each film and discussion brings awareness to the wide-ranging issues and connections between the climate, environmental rights, human rights, and social justice.
“There are a number of important films in the festival,” said Sean Coffman, Executive Director of The Human Family and Festival Director for the event. “The filmmakers intentionally made their films accessible for students, and we’re thrilled to be able to make these films available for study. From lessons about the history of and importance of the Clean Air Act or the protection of our waterways to the impacts of the loss of our native prairie lands, the films speak directly to issues that directly impact North Dakotans.”
To receive an All-Access Pass to the festival, educators need to complete an online form accessible at https://tinyurl.com/NDERFFEducator. The form may also be accessed at the festival’s website at www.NDERFF.org.
