The 28th Environmental Film Festival: ONLINE


The DC Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital (DCEFF) is the world’s premiere showcase of environmentally themed films. Since 1993, its mission has been to celebrate Earth and inspire understanding and stewardship of the environment through the power of film. The DCEFF, whose impact continues to grow both in DC and beyond, offers the unique opportunity for films and filmmakers to reach national and international lawmakers and decision-makers.

With the cooperation and support of the filmmakers, DCEFF offers a selection of the 2020 Festival schedule — most of which are absolutely free to stream — until March 31!

In the framework of that Online Version, the DCEFF presents the French documentary Wine Calling. 

Wine Calling

by Bruno Sauvard

2018 - France - 95 min

All around the world, joyous rebels have invaded the vineyards to create the wine they love: a natural wine free of codes and norms. While there are more than 3,000 wine growers in France, less than 3 percent of them are working in bio, biodynamic, or natural methods of wine production. For ethical reasons, this relatively small community of wine growers has chosen environmentally friendly farming practices aimed at finding the natural expression of terroir -- the full breadth of land, geography, and climate -- and the living character of the wine.
