Empowering youth to change the world.

In 2012, Breathe California began producing the Clear the Air Film Fest to provide young people with an outlet for their voices to be heard.

The Clear the Air Film Fest showcases student-produced short films that address topics on air quality, environmental health and lung health in the community, with a goal of encouraging young people to use film as a medium to interpret and change the world around them. Each year, Breathe Californiaawards $3,000 in prizes to the winning filmmakers and past judges have included academy award nominated actor Mark Ruffalo, executive director of Greenpeace Annie Leonard and actress and activist Q’orianka Kilcher.

The festival’s mission is to inspire and empower students to become advocates for change in their own communities.

The Clear the Air Film Fest:

  • Showcases young people’s voices and perspectives.
  • Supports extraordinary young people who have a powerful voice through monetary awards and ongoing support.
  • Connects young filmmakers with the larger film-making community, to ensure that they can continue their work long after the festival is over.

For the 2016 Film Fest, Breathe California will award $2,500 in prizes to student filmmakers and $500 to an adult filmmaker who serves as an inspiration to young filmmakers.
