The Environmental Film Festival at Yale (EFFY), sponsored by the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Yale University, is one of America's premier student-run environmental film festivals. Every spring, EFFY showcases incisive, cutting edge films that highlight the environmental and social issues of our time. Expert panels of filmmakers, celebrities, scholars, journalists, activists, and public servants provide our audiences with context, criticism, and greater insights after most screenings. Interactive non-film events like block parties, workshops, nature walks and more round out the festivities. Past festivals have included presentations by Dan Rather, Van Jones, Gus Speth, and Jeffrey Sachs, as well the U.S. Premiere of "The Blood of the Rose", the World Premiere of "Your Environmental Road Trip", advanced screenings of DisneyNature’s "Earth", "Oceans", and "African Cats", several Oscar nominees, and Academy Award winner "The Cove".
