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 the filmmakers to be available after the film showing to answer questions from the audience for the educational benefits. Our hope is that through speakers and films this will broaden 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.

Overall Rating
  • Great Festival - An Honour to be part of indeed!

    June 2021
    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.
