Boulder Environmental/Nature/Outdoors Film Festival celebrates the natural world around us – the ocean, land ecology, the air we breathe. The selection of feature and short films will be drawn from around the world to bring to you a local and global perspective of the challenges and solutions ahead for our environment and nation. The films are just the beginning. Making our festival unique, we bring guests from film, media, politics and the art world to celebrate, and discuss the films’ issues. At this year’s festival, we’ll honor an individual for their commitment and efforts to further the discussion and offer solutions to our environmental challenges as a nation we face.

    Really, only networking suffered because of the pandemic. The festival was great and made it happen when it could have been cancelled. Their communication was great too through it all. Great fest!

    Thank you Michael for your review and participation. It was greatly appreciated. We all missed not being able to gather in beautiful Boulder, CO. Back in-person in 2021.
