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.

Overall Rating
  • I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt appreciation for the remarkable experience I had at the Environmental Film & Screenplay Festival.

    The entire event was impeccably organized, and the selection of films and screenplays presented was not only enlightening but also inspiring. It was evident that each piece was chosen for its powerful message and its potential to provoke thought and stimulate discussion regarding our environment and sustainability.

    What truly stood out to me was the audience engagement. The feedback and reactions during the screenings were profound, reflecting a diverse audience deeply invested in environmental issues. This interactive aspect of the festival enriched the experience, providing invaluable insights and fostering a community spirit that was truly special.

    Really enjoy the format of this festival! Like many filmmakers, I'm sure, traveling to film festivals can be cost prohibitive and the Environmental Film & Screenplay Festival brings the audience to the filmmaker. They provided thoughtful video feedback to my short film, "Tides," from a variety of viewers. It's great to see how one's work is received by audiences. This festival really works to promote filmmaker work with possible podcast interviews and other interview formats. Definitely worth the entry fee!
