The RVA Environmental Film Festival was founded as “The Biggest Picture: Richmond’s First Environmental Film Festival” in 2008 and 2009, and the James River Film Society served as fiscal agent. The Sierra Club Falls of the James Group revived the event in 2011 as the RVA Environmental Film Festival and survives through additional support from local nonprofits and businesses. The festival’s goal is to offer entertaining and educational films that leave attendees with increased awareness of environmental issues that we face locally and globally.
