The Florida environmental film festival's purpose is education and literacy through films.
Our selection of films (shorts, documentaries, and feature films) will offer the audience an accessible medium through films and speakers to discuss critical thinking with the audience. We will be soliciting speakers and filmmakers to be available after the film showing to answer questions from the audience for educational benefits. Our hope is that through speakers and films this will broaden the knowledge of the audience for the environment in Florida.

FEFF wants to screen locally made films and international films that show creativity and diversity, on the environmental impacts of Florida, and a better way forward.
We only accept submissions FilmFreeway.

We base our final film selections on these five questions:

1. Does the film present a narrative that could be appreciated by a Florida audience?
2. In particular, does the film address an issue that impacts the Florida environment?
3. Does the film present a concise easily understood solution-based story?
4. Conversely, does the film promote a person, a group, politics, or religion?
5. Does the film come across as smart, resourceful, and respectful?

Awards & Prize will be the screening of the film, and advertisement on social media.

*Please have a film poster (film name and director) in jpeg of your film that is in high resolution, otherwise, we cannot post for social media or advertisement.

    Response from festival:

    The film A voyage Against Time is an international collaboration about the perils of a world problem; the need for clean water. We must act against the ruination of water so to ensure the preservation of all cultures. This film complements the more technical and scientific films by giving us a down-to-earth and impassioned narrative that is not only understandable by a Floridian audience but should impassion them to be as proactive with our local environment. As such, we would like to compliment the director and narrator for their remarkable film that should be seen by a broad an audience as possible.

    It was an honor to screen your film Yu Chen. A beautiful produced film about the dystopian world of waste management. It is quietly powerful.
