Environmental Film Festival 2015

The Environmental Film Festival Australia entertains with groundbreaking films, traversing the relationship between humans and their environments, challenging the way people think about the natural world.

The Environmental Film Festival Australia began in 2010 (As EFF Melbourne) with a vision to inform, engage and inspire on the environmental issues that affect us today and has since grown into one of Melbourne’s most notable ‘green’ events, weaving its way into the colourful tapestry that is Melbourne's arts and cultural life. With this growing success, and a willing team, the festival has expanded to spread the power of environmental films to more people, across more cities. In 2015 EFFM becomes EFFA and will visit Melbourne, Canberra and Hobart.

A not-for-profit organisation now in its sixth year, EFF remains dedicated to advancing the knowledge and understanding of environmental issues. The festival uses the power of film, music and debate to unite filmmakers, environmentalists, politicians, scientists, experts, and the broader public in their desire to actively engage in issues that affect all of our futures.

From exquisitely shot documentary features and spellbinding short narratives, to thought-provoking expert panel discussions and conversations with filmmakers, our program engages people from all walks of life. With strong partnerships and the support of organisations that share our values, EFFA continues to grow and challenge the way people think about the natural world.
