The 5th annual Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival will take place the first week of April 2022, and this year will be produced by the Philadelphia Film Society. SUBMISSIONS TO THE 2022 FESTIVAL WILL BE BY INVITATION ONLY.
Through our yearly film festival, year-round programming, and online resources, we seek to advance understanding of the environment through the power of film. The festival showcases compelling features and shorts from around the world in a variety of styles.
Due to the pandemic, there was no festival in 2021. In 2020, the Virtual PhilaEnviroFilmFest presented 50 powerful films along with a juried awards competition, engaging discussions with filmmakers and topical experts, a youth short film competition, and a Kid's Planet program.
The PhilaEnviroFilmFest is a member of the international Green Film Network, an association of the world's 40 top environmental film festivals, increasing outreach opportunities and connections with a global audience. We are also members of Film Festival Alliance and official partners with many regional cultural organizations.
