For 15 years, the Visions of Nature/Voices of Nature Environmental Film Festival has brought compelling and important films to the Tampa Bay area and the Eckerd College community to raise awareness and promote discussion of matters relating to nature, place and the environment. Film scholars and filmmakers from around the world engage the audience in a lively dialogue about the environmental perspectives contained in documentary, animated, experimental and feature films.

The Environmental Film Festival is organized by Catherine Griggs, program coordinator and associate professor of American studies, and by Nathan Andersen, associate professor of philosophy. Major support for the festival is provided by the Phoenix Venture Philanthropy Foundation.
