Center for Environmental Filmmaking

Inspiring students to produce award-winning films and new media that promote environmental conservation

Our Mission:

• To inspire students to create films and multi-platform media that embody creativity and innovation, the courage to stand up for one’s beliefs, and the compassion to care for those who cannot speak for themselves. Together, we will explore ways to reach audiences through transformative storytelling that has heart, humanity, and impact.

• To bring together diverse and inclusive media-makers, storytellers, thought leaders, scientists, and others committed to sharing powerful stories that are catalysts for engagement in critical environmental issues.
