Welcome to CAFF 2023
After two years of virtual events, the Climate Action Film Festival will return to the big screen for two in-person premieres in Burlington, VT and the Hudson, NY in May, 2023.
The mission of the Climate Action Film Festival® is to bring together activists, filmmakers, and communities to witness powerful stories of climate action, and to inspire further action, locally and beyond.
Climate change is an existential threat caused by human beings and the unsustainable systems we’ve created that reward extractive behavior with massive wealth. Those who have profited from the destruction of our planet will insist they have the answers, but the truth is we cannot rely only on these same systems to solve the problems they’ve created.
Our sustainable future lies beyond existing paradigms, and in order to get there, we need to reimagine what’s possible. Dedicated individuals across the world are answering the call by applying their ingenuity, their energy, and their time to this monumental challenge. CAFF is a platform to bring you these stories and inspire further action.
CAFF 2022 returned as a virtual festival that challenged viewers to think beyond existing paradigms and reimagine what's possible when it comes to solving the many problems posed by climate change.
In 2021, CAFF went fully virtual with a strong 10-film selection streamed over several evenings of programming, along with live interviews with activists and filmmakers.
The Climate Action Film Festival debuted in February of 2020 to 4 sold out screenings in Vermont and New York, raising over $8,000 for local climate action groups, and inspiring hundreds of audience members.
