RVA ENVIRONMENTAL FILM FESTIVAL

A Brief History

The festival was founded as The Biggest Picture: Richmond’s First Environmental Film Festival in 2008 and 2009 under the James River Film Society. The Sierra Club Falls of the James Group revived the event in 2011 as the RVA Environmental Film Festival and it continues to gather additional support from local nonprofits and businesses.

This Years Festival

On February 5 through 12, 2018, the Enrichmond Foundation, the Sierra Club – Falls of the James Group, the Capital Region Land Conservancy and Viridiant will partner to present the Eighth Annual RVA Environmental Film Festival. The festival takes place at locations across the city and Chesterfield County including the University of Richmond, VCU, public libraries, The Visual Arts Center, The Byrd Theatre and The Science Museum of Virginia. The week long event showcases local and national films that raise awareness of environmental issues relevant to the Richmond region, our nation, and our planet.
