Center for Environmental Filmmaking

Changing lives, fostering creativity, conserving the environment through the power of media.

The world faces unprecedented environmental challenges, from climate disruption to species extinction. The Center was founded on the belief that powerful films, images and stories can play a key role in fostering conservation and bringing about change. CEF is committed to raising awareness and empowering action through the use of media.

As part of AU’s School of Communication (SOC),the Center partners with SOC’s programs in journalism, public communication, film and media arts, and communication studies, drawing on the expertise of the accomplished filmmakers on SOC’s faculty to offer students world-class professional training. We also collaborate with the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of International Service. Located in Washington, DC, we belong to a broad and vital community that includes the Smithsonian Institution, the National Geographic Society, Discovery, Animal Planet, and PBS, as well as many nonprofit environmental organizations and government agencies, providing rich opportunities for our students. Each year we participate in the Realscreen Summit, Environmental Film Festival, and other major film festivals and conferences.
