Our mission is to bring the planet to Philadelphia through the power of environmental films.

The Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival showcases exceptional new films that celebrate the beauty of the earth, explore challenges facing our planet, and entertain, inform, and inspire personal action. Highlights of the annual April Festival include an Opening Night Red Carpet Reception, a juried competiton with awards, discussions with filmmakers and subject experts, a student film competition, an exciting youth film program, and other special events.

In addition to the Festival, we partner with local and regional cultural institutions to offer special film events throughout the year.
