The culmination of an undertaking to champion emerging filmmakers, the festival aims to offer a community space in which to generate increased understanding of environmental stewardship.

"[We are] really excited to get underway with the Equinox Mountain Environmental Film Festival," said Ross Ferrier, one of the festival's judges. "Sharing projects with like-minded filmmakers, especially at the grass-roots level, is so beneficial for growing perspective."

The festival, which had originally planned to use the Village Picture Shows as its home before it closed, will take place at Levity Mountain farm and homestead.

"I'm so excited to see the expansion of this community of filmmakers, activists and like-minded humans," said festival organizer, Georgia Wells. "Levity Mountain is an inspirational example of how community projects are shaping towns and are encouraging everyone to care about our future on this troubled planet. We hope to continue our collaboration with Levity Mountain, not only this year, but for many years to come."
