On February 6 through 12, 2017, The Enrichmond Foundation, the Sierra Club – Falls of the James Group, Capital Region Land Conservancy, Chesapeake Climate Action Network, and Viridiant will partner to present the Seventh Annual RVA Environmental Film Festival. In 2017 the festival will take place at several locations including University of Richmond, VCU, The Visual Arts Center of Richmond, area libraries, The Byrd Theater, and The Science Museum of Virginia. The week long event will showcase local and national films selected to raise awareness of environmental issues relevant to the Richmond region, our nation, and our planet. The RVA EFF strives to screen the latest and greatest environmental films that may not be available elsewhere in the Richmond area, as well as helping support the local film community.

The RVA Environmental Film Festival was founded as “The Biggest Picture: Richmond’s First Environmental Film Festival” in 2008 and 2009, and the James River Film Society served as fiscal agent. The Sierra Club Falls of the James Group revived the event in 2011 as the RVA Environmental Film Festival and survives through additional support from local nonprofits and businesses. The festival’s goal is to offer entertaining and educational films that leave attendees with increased awareness of environmental issues that we face locally and globally.
