The Colorado Environmental Film Festival is back for its 16th year, but it returns as an all-virtual event thanks to surges in COVID infections.
“The all-virtual setting for this year’s festival will allow us to share films and conversations about the pressing issues facing our planet with audiences across the globe, while also preserving public health in the face of the continued COVID-19 pandemic,” CEFF said in a statement. “With recent COVID surges impacting our community in Colorado, we ask for your understanding as we adapt to the changing situation.”
However, while screens may be smaller, the festival itself is not.
Set for Feb. 24-March 6, the virtual vent features more than 90 critical new films about critical issues facing the planet.
Films are on-demand and may include special features such as live filmmaker conversations.
CEFF’s virtual festival website is an easy-to-use tool that includes everything filmgoers need to explore, purchase and enjoy this year’s selection of films.
The “How to Fest” tab takes visitors to a helpful page that answers frequently asked questions, as well as offers some technical help for configuring your computer, television or handheld device for viewing.
Tickets range in price from $10 to $75. Purchase a collection of 3-6 films or view all 90—including 13 world premiers—with a $75 all-access pass.
CEFF seeks to use the power of film to inspire, educate, and motivate audiences to protect and preserve the environment.
The annual festival presents thought-provoking films and dialogue that raise awareness of a wide variety of interconnected ecological, social, and economic themes and provide an experience for the audience beyond passive film viewing.
