Local Events. Global Issues.

For more than 20 years, the Environmental Film Festival has played a critical role in bringing together filmmakers, policymakers, scientists, educators, and citizens committed to the future of our planet.

Each March in Washington, D.C., we host America’s largest environmental film festival, presenting 150+ films to an audience of over 27,000.

By partnering with leading museums, embassies, universities and theaters, we aim to advance the public’s understanding of the environment and inspire action, through the power of film.

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