The first Blue Planet Film Fest will be held from Sept. 4-7 in Santa Monica, CA. The films slated will deal with environmental and animal welfare themes.

The event is attempting to use as many green practices as possible. They are partnering with green ticketing service, InTicketing, to create non-tree tickets, and InTicketing has agreed to plant a tree for every ticket sold. One dollar of each ticket sold will be donated to the cause that particular movie is promoting.

According to Variety, executive director Mira Tweti, said their “goal is to revolutionize the film festival dynamic and have the audience participate to effect change with their dollars and actions.”

Each day during the fest will be themed, with Friday as Animal Day, Saturday as Water Day, Sunday as Land Day and Monday as Future Day.

Starting small but this looks like it could be an interesting event that could grow in the next few years. If you’re in LA and on the Westside, check out the schedule.
