The Environmental Film Festival Australia began in 2010 (As EFF Melbourne) with a vision to inform, engage and inspire on the environmental issues that affect us today and has since grown into one of Melbourne’s most notable ‘green’ events, weaving its way into the colourful tapestry that is Melbourne's arts and cultural life. With this growing success, and a willing team, the festival expanded in 2015 to spread the power of environmental films to more people and cities, including Canberra and Hobart. In 2016, EFFA seeks to expand to Sydney, Brisbane and regional centres. A not-for-profit organisation now in its seventh year, EFFA remains dedicated to advancing the knowledge and understanding of environmental issues. The festival uses the power of film, panel discussions and debate to unite filmmakers, environmentalists, politicians, scientists, experts, and the broader public in their desire to actively engage in issues that affect all of our futures. A complementary education program for primary and secondary schools, also inspires the environmental leaders of tomorrow.
