The very first red….er, I mean GREEN carpet for the very first EARTHxFilm and their very first Opening Night Gala selection, Jeff Orlowski’s CHASING CORAL featured Earth Day Texas and EARTHxFilm luminaries, a cool race car driver, and an Oscar winner! All of them walked along a turf carpet that could double as a putting green outside Fair Park’s beautiful Music Hall.
