The Eugene Environmental Film Festival is a multi-venue weekend event full of meaningful and inspiring films, discussions, speakers, workshops, and live performance and music in downtown Eugene. The Eugene Environmental Film Festival (EEFF) seeks to raise awareness of all that is the environment globally and locally. We aim to provide a holistic perspective concerning the ways that we enjoy the environment; to understand the ways the environment feeds and nourishes us; to address the exploitation and harm to the environment; and to explore ways that we resist and protect the environment. Our vision is to help raise awareness and inspire positive, lasting change.
Eugene is an ideal location to host an environmental film festival. We have great access to the outdoors with 10,000 ft. peaks to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Many people who live here are socially conscious about and active in environmental issues. There are numerous environmentally-based non-profits located in Eugene tackling issues such as food justice, local to global changes in laws and policies , sustainability, and environmental justice. Eugene is the birth place of Our Children’s Trust, which is an organization to empower the voice of youth to protect the environment. And the City of Eugene has multiple sustainability initiatives.
