BRING YOUR COMMUNITY UP-TO-SPEED IN THE MOST ENJOYABLE WAY POSSIBLE!
Hold an EcoCinema Cafe at your school, college, business, house of worship, organization, or municipality. Select from our assortment of films with viewing rights and run films continuously in your cafeteria or public meeting place.
The EcoCinema Cafe is a concentrated festival designed to be held in a campus setting. Award-winning films are played all day over the course of several days. The festival is held in an accessible, informal setting, such as a cafeteria where people would normally congregate, and which can accommodate a large audience.
At colleges, besides from reaching students who are eating in the cafeteria, professors can request specific films to be shown at times when they can bring their class. Also, faculty are encouraged to give extra credit to students who attend on their on.
There is usually a discussion between each film, often with the film maker participating over Skype.
A fast and fun way to get up to speed about environmental problems & solutions.

Running the Festival
EEF staff can run the festival from start to finish. (brochure) We will inspire dialog and discussion following each film. We will be on-site during the entire event, operating the projector, ensuring that faculty requests for films are honored, and accommodating on-the-spot requests for specific films, wherever possible. The host institution would provide the AV equipment and microphones.
Run the festival yourself! Have your program committee participate in an EEF training session.
