The Environmental Film Festival at Yale is one of America's premier student-run environmental film festivals. For ten years now, every spring in New Haven, CT EFFY brings incisive and ground breaking films that highlight the environmental and social issues of our time.

Join us April 4-7, 2018 in downtown New Haven, CT for the Tenth Anniversary of the iconic movie experience. In addition to highlighting the brightest environmental storytelling of the past year, celebrated directors and creatives from past festivals will return for discussion of how we move forward constructively as environmental storytellers. This year's EFFY will be an unmissable experience!
