“The world’s largest annual media collaboration event, which brings together filmmakers, over 100 nonprofits, and the United Nations, is confirmed for December 12, 2012 (12/12/12). One Day on Earth, a grassroots online community of filmmakers, aid workers, educators, and everyday inspired media creators has held worldwide filming events on both 10/10/10 and 11/11/11, making this December 12th the end of a trilogy of films.
The global collaborations result in a feature length documentary and a shared archive of diverse media, detailing both the joys and struggles of everyday life. The past two events yielded a combined 7,000 hours of footage in over 90 languages and created a growing online community that now has 30,000 members.One Day on Earth grew steadily as a grassroots effort of international filmmakers dedicated to documenting the 24-hour period of October 10th, 2010 (10.10.10). In April 2010, prompted by interest from the United Nations and the international educational community, One Day on Earth moved to a social networking platform that could serve as the eventual sharing site for the growing community.”
