17 years of compelling films about nature, place and the environment
Join film scholars and filmmakers from around the world to discuss “Visions of Nature/Voices of Nature” — environmental perspectives contained in documentary, animated, experimental and feature films. Organizers discussed this year’s films with local media (Bay News 9 and WTSP).

We are very excited to announce the winners of the 2014 Visions of Nature/Voices of Nature Awards. We had an exciting festival, with packed theaters, and appreciative audiences.
Our guest speakers informed and entertained us, and their films exposed us to new ways of thinking about our connections with the natural world. Our awards this year recognize films that were able to educate at the same time as they entertained and surprised audiences, provoking strong reactions and insightful questions.
Please contact Catherine Griggs for more information regarding how to submit your film for an upcoming Eckerd College Environmental Film Festival.
