We tell stories about projects that make a difference, creating positive change in our world.
2nd Annual Film Fest Now Open for Submissions!
On the one hand, the festival wants to expose students, faculty & staff of the university, as well as the larger Houston – Galveston community, to ideas, concepts and stories of sustainability. On the other hand, we want to empower filmmakers and artists, both local, national and international, who are working on sustainability-related subjects & stories.
The festival begins with a 4-day event from November 9 - 12, which will includes film screenings in the UHCL Bayou Theater & the Armand Bayou Nature Center Lecture Hall, the official opening of our UHCL gallery exhibition, several panel discussions on Environmental Activism and the Responsible Use of Water, a performance of the Houston band the Free Radicals, a workshop and performance with Houston up-cycle artist Charles Washington and, last, but not least, a vendor exhibition of local sustainability-related organizations. This intense 4-day event kicks off an ongoing bi-weekly screening series with showings of long and medium format films at UHCL & ABNC.
Our festival is put on through a joint effort by faculty and staff members of the university partnering with community organizations such as the Armand Bayou Nature Center and the Houston Citizen's Environmental Coalition, to mention just a few.
We accept films and physical artwork for the theater screenings and the gallery show in a variety of categories until August 25. Please see for details in the section on our 2022 Festival Edition
