Featured Event: Explorers Festival 2017

Our friends at National Geographic invite you to a multi-day celebration of exploration!

June 15-18: National Geographic Convenes Scientists, Explorers & Storytellers

The National Geographic Society is a global nonprofit that pushes the boundaries of exploration. A longtime partner of the Environmental Film Festival, we presented our 2017 Opening Night film Water & Power at their headquarters, last month.

Next month (June 15-18), Nat Geo’s very own Explorers Festival will bring together the most fascinating and innovative scientists, conservationists, explorers, and storytellers to share how their discoveries and ideas are creating change for the better.

Explorers Festival will include happy hoursculinary adventures, tons of interesting talks and even a couple familiar films, like Elk River, House Without Snakes and Forgotten Coast, from our 2016 & 2017 festivals, respectively.
