This year's environmental film fest features live, virtual events

Oregon Coast

The Center for Environmental Futures at the University of Oregon is sponsoring this year's Eugene Environmental Film Festival, in partnership with the Emerald Earth Film Festival.

The festivities run April 15-24, with both virtual and live screenings.

The virtual portion will run April 15-22, with free streaming global access to more than 60 diverse films from regions around the world. The event will begin with an online opening reception with music from Indigenous fusion flutist and percussionist Mignon Geli and Mountain Lion Padilla.

Films can be viewed at the Eugene Environmental Film Festival website.

Then, on the weekend of April 22-24, Broadway Metro will host 12 live screenings with weekend passes available. On Friday, an opening reception will be held at New Zone Gallery with musical guest Ricardo Cardenas.

Each film will be accompanied by a Q&A with filmmakers and activists. A portion of the proceeds will go to Cascadia Wildlands and Our Children's Trust.
