The Colorado Environmental Film Festival celebrates the power that film has to inspire, educate and motivate audiences around the world.

Our hope with each film we create is that it will inspire, educate and help create change. We support those doing work to address environmental and humanitarian issues.
We are so proud of the positive response ‘The Hunt for Medals, Not Lions’ is receiving. The work Big Life Foundation is doing to address human-wildlife conflict and restore lion and elephant populations is so important and we are so honored to have been a part of documenting it.
