DC Environmental Film Festival

March 16, 2023 - March 26, 2023


The Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (DCEFF) returns for its 31st year with in-person and virtual programming March 16-26. The 2023 event will highlight over 100 films and offer screenings and expert discussions on issues like climate change, environmental justice, and wildlife conservation. Film highlights include: DEEP RISING, narrated by Executive Producer Jason Momoa (AQUAMAN, DUNE), Oscar-nominee ALL THAT BREATHES, and WILD LIFE, the new documentary from FREE SOLO filmmakers Jimmy Chin and Chai Vasarhelyi. The Festival will also include the return of DCEFF’s free conversationseries The Forum, which will offer insider panels on corporate corruption, equity and inclusion in the outdoors, and storytelling during times of war. In-person screenings and events will take place at partner venues across the DC Metro Area, including the Naval Heritage Center, Eaton DC, National Geographic Museum, E Street Cinema, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, as well as many other museums, embassies, universities and cultural institutions. DCEFF will also continue its virtual programming in a hybrid festival model that allows audiences around the country to continue participating.
