who We are


The Richmond Environmental Film Festival (RVA EFF) showcases films that raise awareness of environmental issues relevant to the Richmond region, our nation, and our planet. 

A Brief History

In 2008, the Festival was founded as The Biggest Picture: Richmond’s First Environmental Film Festival under the James River Film Society. In 2011, the Sierra Club - Falls of the James Group backed the event as the RVA Environmental Film Festival. Support from the community for the Festival grows with each passing year.

Free Admission to All Films

The Enrichmond Foundation, the Sierra Club – Falls of the James Group, the Capital Region Land Conservancy and Viridiant will partner to present this year’s Ninth Annual RVA Environmental Film Festival. Always free, the event takes place at venues such as the Community Idea Stations, Byrd Theatre, the Science Museum of Virginia, VCU, the University of Richmond, public libraries, and other locations around the Richmond metropolitan area.
