Richmond, Va. ~ Plans are rapidly moving forward for the fourth annual RVA Environmental Film Festival (RVA EFF), to be held around the second weekend in February, 2014. The Enrichmond Foundation, Falls of the James Group – Sierra Club, Capital Region Land Conservancy, EarthCraft Virginia and the James River Green Building Council have been working together to make sure this year’s festival is the best yet, with many insightful films designed to raise awareness of environmental issues relative to all residents of our planet – and to Richmond citizens in particular.
The film selection subcommittee is pleased to announce its fourth confirmed film, “Revolution“. From the coral reefs in Papua New Guinea and deforestation in Madagascar to the largest and most destructive environmental project in history in Alberta, Canada, Rob Stewart reveals in this follow-up to his acclaimed Sharkwater documentary that all of our actions are interconnected and that environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification, pollution and food/water scarcity are reducing the Earth’s ability to house humans. How did this happen, and what will it take to change the course that humanity has set itself on? Startling, beautiful, and provocative, Revolution inspires audiences from across the globe to start a revolution and change the world forever.
Richard Branson calls it “a stunning adventure” and Jean Michel Cousteau says the film is “a must see; an inspirational and beautiful film that will create a much needed ocean revolution.”
Thanks to generous sponsors such as Bon Secours, Whole Foods Market, the Sierra Club-Falls of the James Group, REI, EarthCraft Virginia, Carytown Merchants Association, Slow Food RVA, James River Association, Carytown Merchant’s Association, Watershed Architects, Sunflower Solar, Bakers Crust, and The Fresh Market, this event is free and open to the public. This year’s Festival will feature a VIP reception to take place on Feb 7th and an environmental short film contest.
More information about other films, guests and speakers, and specific schedules for each day will be made available as the event becomes nearer. For more information on the Festival, including sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, visit www.rvaenvironmentalfilmfestival.com.
