From October 24 – 28, 2012.
The 2nd Annual Miami and the Beaches Environmental Film Festival (MBEFF), a five-day event, will once again bring the most cutting edge environmental films and documentaries to a wide audience at various signature venues in Miami Beach.
The first festival achieved tremendous success, and has gained great momentum for its second year. During last year’s event, festival organizers hosted a private reception and screening of My Father, The Captain: My Life with Jacques Cousteau to members of the Society of Environmental Journalists and the world-famous Cousteau family. In addition, the festival presented a student film competition in partnership with the Big Blue & You Foundation.
Similar environmental film festivals launched throughout the US, like the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in California and the DC Environmental Film festival, have generated a significant following and level of attention within the filmmaking and environmental community. The vision is for the MBEFF is to become the premier event and forum for the exchange of innovative ideas amongst directors, producers, scientists, non-profit organizations, policy makers, businesses, government and our local community.
The festival’s goal is to create a highly recognized annual event in South Florida, which will educate, motivate, and inspire attendees through films addressing contemporary environmental issues.
This year the event will take place at different venues in Miami Beach including The Colony Theater, The New World Center Wallcast, and the Miami Beach Cinematheque.
