About the Festival
“For over 20 years, Environmental Film Festival has played a critical role in bringing together leading filmmakers, policymakers, scientists, educators, and citizens committed to preserving our future.”
-Former Vice President Al Gore
Kristin Davis, Robert Redford, Dr. Sylvia Earle, & Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos have all been featured speakers at EFF.
Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is the world’s premier showcase for environmental film and filmmakers. Each March in Washington, DC, we host America’s largest environmental film festival, presenting 100+ films to an audience of over 30,000. Our films screen at Washington’s leading museums, embassies, universities and theaters, and are enhanced by high-impact panel discussions with distinguished filmmakers, environmental experts and policymakers.
