Natural Awakenings Richmond

Online Film Festival Celebrates the Environment

The 11th annual RVA Environmental Film Festival (EFF) will be held from February 12 through 28 and will virtually showcase more than 25 free local and national films selected to raise awareness of environmental issues relevant to the Richmond region, the nation and the planet. The Virginia Environmental Film awards will be awarded on February 14. Feature films will include: Frozen Obsession documents an expedition through a dramatically changing Arctic aboard the Icebreaker Oden. Cooked: Survival by Zip Code, an environmental justice film, takes audiences from the deadly 1995 Chicago heat wave to one of today’s biggest growth industries: disaster preparedness. Into the Okavango follows a 1,500-mile expedition across three countries and shows the effects of increasing pressure from human activity.

This free event is made possible through support from the following sponsors: Merrill Lynch, Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine, Citizens Climate Lobby, Enrichmond Foundation, Sierra Club-Falls of the James Group, Natural Awakenings magazine and Vegan Action.
