The DC region will host the 25th annual Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (EFF) from March 14th-26th. The festival is a showcase of environmental documentaries, shorts and movies from around the world. Many of the screenings feature panel discussions or talks by those behind the camera.
In Montgomery County, there will be screenings the AFI Silver Spring, including the Beekeeper and his Son, The Red Turtle and Kedi.
We hope to see you at the movies! If you attend a screening, tell us about your experience by tweeting us at @MyGreenMC.

For the third year in a row, GreenFest is partnering with EFF to show documentaries at the May 6th environmental festival at Bohrer Park in Gaithersburg.
This year, we’re screening a series of short films from the larger festival. The schedule of shorts will be announced soon at montgomerycountygreenfest.org
The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is the world’s premier showcase of environmentally themed films. Through our annual festival, year-round events, and online resources, we seek to advance public understanding of the environment through the power of film.
Each March in Washington, DC, we host the largest environmental film festival in the United States, presenting more than 150 films to an audience of over 27,000. Often combined with thematic discussions and social events, our films screen at museums, embassies, libraries, universities and local theaters. Many of our screenings are free.
DCEFF also partners with filmmakers, distributors, and venues to present environmental films throughout the year. Our Washington, DC location offers the unique ability for films and filmmakers to reach national decision makers.
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.
