Fantastic Fungi Day Education
One day worldwide showing of Fantastic Fungi, an international film to celebrate the mycelial world.
On March 26th, 2020, Fantastic Fungi Day is bringing the fungi kingdom and all of its inspiration and beauty above ground for a one-of-a-kind immersive consciousness-shifting screening event that will interconnect global communities as we mirror the wisdom of the underground mycelium network and connect with one another.
Fantastic Fungi will screen in 500+ venues across the globe including a not to be missed conversation with award-winning Director Louie Schwartzberg, renowned Mycologist Paul Stamets and other luminary special guests. Screenings in host towns and cities include New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Paris, Sydney, Melbourne, Sao Paulo, Panama City, Mexico City, Vancouver, Toronto, Tokyo, and many more.
Now is the time to come together as one on March 26th and join Louie Schwartzberg, Paul Stamets and others as we honor our partner in the world beneath us and begin to bring that which lies below ground … above ground.
