Why We Are Streaming Cinema Verde Now

The environmental film festival launched a streaming platform.


Now available as a streaming platform, Cinema Verde offers an eye-opening journey through 13 years of environmental film festivals.

While we all long to travel carefree again after a long pandemic, we have also become more aware of the fragile state of the world. Cinema Verde provides us with the opportunity to explore places and topics to heighten our awareness and to offer solutions to the rapidly growing threats to nature, animals and society.

With a subscription starting from $5, viewers can support the insightful and captivating work of award-winning and independent environmental filmmakers worldwide. There is also a gift option for those who want to share environmental awareness.

Cinema Verde as a streaming platform provides us with continuous access to a film database that speaks to our consciousness and has been collected for over a decade. The selection process is spearheaded by long-time environmental journalist and Cinema Verde director Trish Riley and is investigative in nature. 

“Cinema Verde as a streaming platform offers an opportunity to build awareness - a passport to see how the world is connected, even from afar, and what you may be overlooking every day right outside your own front door,” says Trish, adding, “The goal is to inspire a collaborative spirit and commitment to a healthy future.”

The current database will be expanded to include more than 120 festival films during the upcoming Cinema Verde film festival, which will take place February 12-14, 2022.
