Colorado Environmental Film Festival shows movies 'have the power to change people's behavior'

Posted

The 10th annual Colorado Environmental Film Festival took place Feb. 18-20 at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden. Hundreds of people enjoyed 50 films shown throughout the weekend.

One of the reasons the film festival takes place every year is because it is a powerful way to reach people who may not otherwise have a lot of exposure to environmental topics, said founder Shawna Crocker. Everybody might not participate in environmental hikes, workshops or trainings, but most people enjoy going to the movies. It’s the filmmakers’ passions that reach the audience, Crocker said.

And the festival’s efforts did not go unnoticed by others in the environmental community. On March 18, the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education is awarding the film festival the Advancing Environmental Literacy Award.

“We live in a media-soaked world,” Crocker said. “Films have the power to change people’s behavior.”
