Cinema Verde International Environmental Film and Arts Festival


Since 2010, Cinema Verde International Environmental Film and Arts Festival has hosted a multidisciplinary program of film, music, visual arts exhibitions, workshops, and public forums focused on broad themes related to the environment and cultural and economic sustainability. The 2019 festival, Feb 14-17, will feature documentaries, shorts and student films with art, music and an ecofair.

The goal of the Festival, which is directed by SEJ member Trish Riley, is to provide environmental education to the public through film, arts, workshops, events, tours and any other forum or media; to increase public awareness of environmental practices that enhance public health and improve quality of life in urban, suburban and rural settings.

An integral part of the festival is a film competition with categories for professionals and students – high school and college.
