On December 12th, 12.12.12, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens will record the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the third annual global day of media creation called One Day on Earth. Together, we will create a shared archive and a film.

Founded in 2008, One Day on Earth’s first media creation event occurred on 10.10.10. and the second on 11.11.11. The 10.10.10 collaboration was the first ever simultaneous filming event occurring in every country of the world. One Day on Earth collaborations create a unique geo-tagged video archive as well as an annual feature film.

Together, we are showcasing the amazing diversity, conflict, tragedy, and triumph that occurs in one day. We invite you to join our international community of thousands of filmmakers, hundreds of schools, and dozens of non-profits, and contribute.

About One Day on Earth

In 2010 on November 10th, 10.10.10, across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens recorded the human experience over a 24-hour period and contribute their voice to the first annual global day of media creation called One Day on Earth. Together, we will created a shared archive and a Motion Picture – One Day on Earth

One Day on Earth produced the film in partnership with the United Nations, more than 60 non-profit organizations and a growing online community of over 19,000 filmmakers, both experienced and novice. The One Day on Earth community, including over 95 United Nations country offices, filmed in every country of the world, capturing both the joys and the struggles of everyday life. The film pulls from the resulting 3,000 hours of footage, which is now a shared-for-use archive for all those that participated.

”While the film identifies the common threads that connect us all, it also celebrates the diversity that is a part of our unique individual nature,” says Kyle Ruddick, Founder and Director of One Day on Earth. ”The film contains a message of hope, but also a strong call to action for positive change on issues that face both the global and local communities.”
