Small town, big ideas…


We are accepting entries for the 2017 Princeton Environmental Film Festival, which will be held March 28 – April 2, 2017.

The Princeton Environmental Film Festival is sponsored by the Princeton Public Library and is held annually at 65 Witherspoon Street in downtown Princeton, New Jersey, with additional special events offered throughout the year.

Founded in 2006, the PEFF’s mission is to share exceptional documentary films and engage our community in exploring environmental sustainability from a wide range of angles and perspectives.

The festival began in 2007 and has run for 10 consecutive years with more than 100 days of programming,

Our screenings are free of admission and accompanied by a Q&A with film directors and producers, as well as talks by invited speakers visiting the festival or by those who live here in our community. We also offer related events with community partners to connect people with opportunities to engage in sustainable actions and initiatives year-round. As we grow the festival and consider its sustainability, we are mindful to expand our reach while keeping the character of the festival focused on being a great and a special local event.


Watch films from the previous years of the PEFF in the Princeton Public Library collection by searching keyword PEFF. Films are available on BluRay or DVD and may be borrowed with a Princeton Public Library card.
