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.

    Great festival, very thoughtful! Had a great time. Just wish they would update the film submission status on film freeway so I can keep track of being a finalist or winner or what ever it may be more accurately!

    I won with my short script "Senior Ditch Day," and this is probably my favorite festival I've ever been involved in. They did a virtual reading of my short and created a video that was beyond my expectations and so helpful. These folks really care about supporting writers and helping you with your craft. Highly recommend.

    This was an OUTSTANDING Contest to participate in. When my script 'Underwater Hazards' made it to Official Selection I was invited to have a short podcast created of actors table reading my first scene. When my script moved forward to Award Winner, Mathew interviewed me about the script for a Podcast. The support is amazing. I couldn't be happier. Thank you Environmental Film & Screenplay!

    It is truly rewarding for Forest Under Stress to be selected and receive the Animation Award at the Environmental FSF. The festival's communication rocks and the coverage excelled!
    I am impressed. The networking is top notch.
    We are a mother daughter duo that created a short animated movie that took 3 years to create concerning the loss of forest resiliency and the answer to restore resiliency. This Award for animation will continue to bring this environmental catastrophe to awareness and educate all who watch Forest Under Stress the animated short.
