Founded in 1993, The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (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.
Each March in Washington, D.C., this showcase of environmentally-themed films seeks to advance public understanding of the environment through the power of film, combined with thematic discussions and social events at museums, embassies, libraries, universities and local theaters.
