About the Environmental Film Festival

The Environmental Film Festival brings compelling and important films to the Tampa Bay area and the Eckerd College community in order to raise awareness and promote discussion of questions relating to nature, place, and the environment. Each year, organizers bring film scholars and filmmakers from around the world to engage the audience in lively discussions of the environmental perspectives contained in documentary, animated, experimental and feature films.

Screenings will be held in The Dan and Mary Miller Auditorium and are free and open to the public. All programs begin at 7 p.m. (except Sunday, February 19, which begins at 2 p.m.) Each program will feature an opportunity for audience questions immediately after the program.

The Environmental Film Festival is coordinated by Nathan Andersen, Associate Professor of Philosophy, and Catherine Griggs, Associate Professor of American Studies. Major Support is provided by The Phoenix Venture Philanthropy Foundation.
