Overview: The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital is pleased to report that the organization met or exceeded its programmatic and financial goals for the season just concluded. The generous support of many organizations and individuals makes these successes possible, and we are most grateful.

Indeed, over the past five years, EFF has steadily undergone substantial and encouraging growth in all areas of its planning and programming. The number of films screened has increased by over 30 percent, while audiences attending Festival screenings have increased by 66 percent. The number of collaborating organizations rose by 68 percent, and the number of screening venues throughout the city has risen by 49 percent. And the number of special guests enhancing Festival programs, including filmmakers, scientists, and other environmental experts, has surged by more than 210 percent over the last five years.

The 2009 Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (EFF) presented 141 documentary, animated, feature, experimental, archival and children’s films from March 11 to 22 throughout Washington, D.C. The 17th annual Festival provided diverse perspectives on global environments to a record audience; more than 25,000 people attended 111 events featuring a wide variety of cinematic work by filmmakers from 34 countries, including 56 Washington, D.C., United States and World premieres.

The twelve-day Festival featured films unavailable in commercial theaters, including winning selections from international festivals such as the United Nations Association Film Festival, Slow Food on Film in Bologna, Italy, the Tokyo International Film Festival, the Vancouver International Film Festival, and the Wildscreen Film Festival in Bristol, UK. Our commitment to the work of international filmmakers brought films from around the world to Washington audiences. Switzerland, Colombia, Ecuador, South Africa, Bhutan and China are just six of the countries featured in EFF’s 2009 film selections.
