|South Florida: a distinctive and diverse environment. From the world’s third largest coral reef barrier, vast mangrove habitats, the unique and rich Everglades ecosystem, to the US’s longest shoreline. A region filled with some of our planet’s most complex fauna and flora communities. A region also home to millions of South Floridians. An urban tropical paradise, which attracts millions of visitors, film makers, television production companies, artists, and divers, to our beautiful sunny beaches, Art Deco District, diverse multi-cultural festivals and much more. An ideal place to hold an environmental film festival.|
|A sustainable relationship with our environment is possible and simply requires the cooperative efforts of multiple people dedicated to the cause of developing a balance that is both sustainable and practical. In doing so, we can ensure a better world for generations to come. The Miami & the Beaches Environmental Film Festival aims to educate individuals using visual arts, and inspire them to become advocates for the environment. Our community houses enough resources, and dedicated members, to set these green initiatives into motion, and make Miami Beach the new “Emerald City by the Sea”.|
Marking a landmark step for local environmental awareness, the 4th Annual Miami and the Beaches Environmental Film Festival (MBEFF), a four-day event, will once again bring the most cutting edge environmental films to a wide audience at various signature venues in Miami Beach. This year, the Festival will take place at venues such as the Colony Theater, the New World Symphony’s Soundscape, the Miami Beach Cinematheque, and the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.
Our goal is for the MBEFF to become the premier event and forum for the exchange of innovative ideas amongst directors, producers, scientists, NGOs, policy makers, businesses, government, and our local community. This exchange of ideas is imperative, as our planet continues to face many ecological and public health threats that need long-term solutions. We want the Festival to be a highly recognized annual event in South Florida, which will engage, motivate, and educate attendees about global environmental issues.. We feel that educating our community through visual means will inspire them to make changes to their lifestyles. In doing so, we hope film festival attendees will further spread our message on the importance of environmental preservation and sustainability.
