About Us

“The Cannes for the green crowd.”–Roll Call

Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is the world’s premiere showcase of environmentally themed films. Through our annual festival, year-round events, and online resources, we seek to advance public understanding of the environment through the power of film.

Each March in Washington, DC, we host the largest environmental film festival in the world, presenting more than 150 films to an audience of over 30,000. Often combined with thematic discussions and social events, our films screen at museums, embassies, libraries, universities and local theaters. Many of the screenings are free, and all are open to the public.

EFF also partners with filmmakers, distributors and venues to present environmental films throughout the year. Our Washington, DC location offers the unique ability for films and filmmakers to reach national decision makers.

Founded in 1993, EFF is the longest-running environmental film festival in the United States. It has grown into a major collaborative cultural event both during the festival and all year-round.

The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax-deductible.
