2024 Eco-Expo – Lights, Camera, Take Action!

The Colorado Environmental Film Festival (CEFF) is a celebration of the power of film to inspire, educate, and motivate audiences to protect and preserve the environment.

Similarly, the CEFF Eco-Expo is designed to showcase environmental-action groups and environmentally-minded/purposed organizations and businesses as they share their ideas and wares, as well as to give CEFF attendees new approaches to being a part of environmental change through involvement, action, and economic and personal choices. The goal is to present an Eco-Expo that empowers and inspires attendees, gives them a few new tools for their environmental-action tool bag, and that is an interesting and enjoyable experience.

Applications are due January 10 and all applicants will be notified of their status by January 15, 2024.

Become a dynamic part of the Call2Action – apply today! Past participants have included environmental non-profits, governmental agencies, providers of energy conservation and renewable energy products, green builders and contractors, organic food stores, organic farms and gardening suppliers, bicycle shops, alternative fuel vendors, local agricultural producers and more!
