Friends of the Festival

Become a Friend of the Festival

Be a part of the largest and longest-running showcase for environmental film in the U.S. Friends of the Festival provide vital annual support that enables DCEFF not only to bring exceptional films, filmmakers, and programs to our annual Festival in March but also to offer screenings and programs all year round—with many of our offerings free of charge.

Friends of the Festival provide critical support and receive benefits like invitations to select screenings, receptions, and other special events—all while enjoying a community of fellow film lovers, filmmakers, and environmental advocates. We are pleased to acknowledge the generosity of Friends of the Festival at the Supporting Friend or higher level in printed materials and on our website.

If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Festival, and prefer to make your contribution in installments, please contact Development Manager Alice Sadler or call (202) 342-2564 ext. 170.

 

Please email Alice Sadler or call (202) 342-2564 ext. 170 with any membership or benefit questions.
