who We are


The Richmond Environmental Film Festival (RVA EFF) brings community awareness of environmental issues through the medium of film.

A Brief History

The festival was founded as The Biggest Picture: Richmond’s First Environmental Film Festival in 2008 and 2009 under the James River Film Society. The Sierra Club Falls of the James Group revived the event in 2011 as the RVA Environmental Film Festival and it continues to gather additional support from local nonprofits and businesses.
