On February 5 through 12, the Enrichmond Foundation, the Sierra Club – Falls of the James Group, the Capital Region Land Conservancy and Viridiant will partner to present the RVA Environmental Film Festival. The festival takes place at locations across the city and Chesterfield County including the University of RichmondVCU, public libraries, The Visual Arts CenterThe Byrd Theatre and The Science Museum of Virginia. The week long event showcases local and national films that raise awareness of environmental issues relevant to the Richmond region, our nation, and our planet.

Every year this event grows in the amount and quality of movies shown. This year is no exception. Click here to see the movie list.

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.


About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
