Submissions for our 2021 event are now open! Thank you to everyone who was involved in our virtual 2020 event. We were lucky enough to be joined online by some of the worlds best film makers, raising awareness and facilitating action about the worlds current environmental and cultural issues.

We hope to be back in a theatre in London in November with our 2021 edition, in a similar style to our extremely successful 2019 event.

Please watch our 2019 highlights film now:

The London Eco Film Festival 2021 - LEFF21 - is an inspirational event which aims to bring together all the eco organisations and storytellers from around the world, to celebrate and accelerate solutions for environmental, cultural and humanitarian issues.

This year we also have a focus on stories from those who have struggled through lockdown, and we want to highlight the heroes of the pandemic, whoever they are.

It's a jam packed programme over two days filled with unforgettable experiences; including eco films, insightful panel discussions, activities and workshops for all ages! Please come along, experience delicious food, listen to traditional music and mesmerising dance routines from around the world, visit stalls filled with artisanal produce and enjoy the atmosphere of an incredible venue filled with like minded people.

We hope to use the festival to foster more collaboration and ignite a public passion towards protecting the environment! And guess what? It is (and always will be) free and open to the public. Students, families and children are all welcome!
