ECOFILM is an International Environmental Short Film Festival, held annually in Mexico.

It responds to the need to raise awareness on environmental topics, promoting audiovisual production and ecological culture with solutions that balance human beings in interaction with their environment.

Supports its actions through collaboration and partnership with institutions, companies and individuals committed to the priority environmental issues on the international agenda. The exchange of ideas is melted in a single event: competition between artists, screenings, lectures, special guests; a prism of ideas, visions and emotions with a new understanding of the world.
