A festival designed to showcase the best of new environmentally themed films (shorts, features) and screenplays (shorts, features, TV pilots) from around the world. We accept any genre (animation, comedy, experimental, horror etc.) as long as it has an underlying environmental thematic. We seek to advance public understanding of the environment through the power of film and storytelling; which is why this festival has been created.

We will perform a winning Environmental screenplay(s) at our festival every single month using professional actors. Then we send the writer a video of the performance reading.

We will showcase a festival every month using our flagship FEEDBACK Film Festival format. All festival dates are private screenings with the same Audience FEEDBACK videos made for the short & feature films, and recorded script readings performed by professional actors for the screenplays. This is our way of showing community over distance so everyone around the world can experience our Audience Feedback videos.

NOTE: Proceeds made from donations during the film festival will be given to 501(c)(3) nonprofit environmental organizations.

All screenplay submissions receive full feedback on their entry no matter what.

All film submissions can obtain the committee's feedback notes on their film if it is not formally shown at the festival as per the filmmaker's request.

Always good to have a detailed press kit page when you submit.

    It is truly rewarding for Forest Under Stress to be selected. The films content concerning forest resiliency is critical and the answer is concise in the films message for Active Forest Management. This selection will continue to bring the environmental catastrophe to awareness. Thank you!

    Fantastic festival. Lots of communication and a great platform to have your film screened on multiple occasions. The audience feedback video was an excellent touch - so nice to see what people actually think of your film. Thrilled that our short doc 'Team Lioness' was awarded best cinematography. Overall, well worth the entry fee.

    It was such a good experience with Environmental Film & Screenplay Festival. The communication with staffs was fast and clear. The variety of feedback provided for my short animation film ‘Finally, I found you!’ (Voted for Best Animation)was not only professional but also helpful for myself development as an artist. Thank you.
