The Portland EcoFilm Festival is the premier environmental film festival in the US Pacific Northwest, showcasing the very best films about nature, the environment, outdoor pursuits and eco-conscious living. We host a four-day festival each fall, a three-day festival each spring around Earth Day, and year-round programming. The Portland EcoFilm Festival is a program of The Hollywood Theatre, Portland, Oregon's historic non-profit art house cinema. By purchasing Mossville -- which won Best Feature and the EcoHero awards at our most recent EcoFilm Festival -- you are supporting us when we need it most. Thank you, stay safe, and we hope to see you at the Hollywood soon!

Special online Q & A with the Mossville team on Saturday, May 16!

Mossville, Louisiana: A once-thriving community founded by formerly enslaved and free people of color, and an economically flourishing safe haven for generations of African American families. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their toxic black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes, and those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos and injustice stands one man who refuses to abandon his family’s land - and his community. Twitter: @MossvilleDoc // Instagram: @MossvilleFilm // Facebook: @MossvilleProject
