The Baltimore Environmental Film Series at Loyola University Maryland was inspired by the great environmentally themed film festivals in the mid-Atlantic including Environmental Film Fest in the Nation’s Capital and The Environmental Film Fest at Yale. As a Jesuit Catholic Institution environmental sustainability is important to the mission and values of Loyola University Maryland. This film series merges the art of film with education and advocacy for those affected by the major environmental issues of the time. The film series is one of many events publicizing a new, interdisciplinary minor in Environmental and Sustainability Studies.
The film events are open to the public and free unless otherwise stated. The majority of the events consist of a feature followed by a discussion of the film with the audience. For events on Loyola's campus free parking on campus in the Butler/Hammerman Lot after 4 PM. Street parking is also available along Coldspring Lane after 6 PM.
