Hollywood Signature Film Series

The Portland EcoFilm Festival

The Portland EcoFilm Festival is the premier environmental film festival series in the US Pacific Northwest, showcasing the very best films about nature, the environment, outdoor pursuits, and eco-conscious living. The festival currently runs year-round, accepting submissions on a rolling basis, internationally.

Our festival's mission is to use the art of cinema to create a more active, empowered and diverse community of environmental advocates. We show the very best eco-films being produced today, help filmmakers by building support for their films as they are being released into public view, and connect audiences to films that inspire environmental advocacy and appreciation!

Learn more about submitting films for consideration by visiting the Portland EcoFilm Festival website. To receive email notifications about upcoming screenings, sign up here. Contact Festival Director and Programmer, Rozzell Medina, at: rozzell@hollywoodtheatre.org.

With special thanks to our sponsors Multnomah County Clean Rivers Coalition and Crag Law Center for their generous sponsorship of our 2022-2023 EcoFilm season.
