The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital is a film festival held annually in Washington, D.C., typically in March.



According to the festival's official website, "The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital seeks to further the public’s understanding of environmental issues – and solutions – through the power of film and thought-provoking discussions with environmental experts and filmmakers. The Festival is a platform that fosters environmental awareness and action."[2]


From the official website of the festival: "Founded by Flo Stone in 1993, the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital has become one of the world’s largest and most influential showcases of environmental film and a major collaborative cultural event in Washington, D.C. Each March the Festival presents a diverse selection of high quality environmental films, including many Washington, D.C., U.S. and world premieres. Documentaries, features, animations and shorts are shown, as well as archival, experimental and children’s film at venues throughout the city. Films are screened at partnering museums, embassies, libraries, universities and local theaters and are attended by large audiences. Selected to provide fresh perspectives on global environmental issues, most Festival films are accompanied by discussions with filmmakers, environmental experts and special guests, including national decision makers and thought leaders, and are free to the public. The Festival’s Web site serves as a global resource for environmental film throughout the year."[2]

A March 10, 2007 article from The Washington Post stated that in the first year of the festival only 1,200 people attended.[3] In 2011 the festival had grown to 30,000 participants.


At the 2011 edition, the festival was held at 60 separate venues, including:
