The funds will support projects creating large protected areas in the Pacific Islands and the Arctic, while also improving fisheries enforcement in Europe, the United States and Central America.

The Center for Environmental Filmmaking was founded on the conviction that films and new media are essential educational and policy tools in the struggle to protect the environment. The center’s mission is to train students to produce films and new media that focus attention on the need to conserve the environment in a way that is effective as well as ethically sound, educationally powerful, and entertaining.

key programs & initiatives:

The Center for Environmental Filmmaking has four signature initiatives:

  • Creating partnerships with well-established organizations—such as Maryland Public Television, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the American Film Institute - that give students the opportunity to produce professional films
  • Bringing world-class filmmakers to the American University campus to teach and mentor
  • Developing innovative, enriching classes and programs, such as Classroom in the Wild
  • Advocating the ethical treatment of wildlife and the environment worldwide

Founded in 2005, the Center for Environmental Filmmaking is lead by Chris Palmer, environmental and wildlife film producer and author of Shooting in the Wild and Confessions of a Wildlife Filmmaker. Over the past three decades, he has spearheaded the production of more than 300 hours of original programming for prime-time television and the giant screen IMAX industry, including the Disney Channel, TBS, Animal Planet, Travel Channel, and PBS. The president of the One World One Ocean Foundation and the MacGillivray Freeman Films Educational Foundation, Palmer and his colleagues have won numerous awards, including two Emmys, an Oscar nomination, and a Lifetime Achievement Award for Media at the International Wildlife Film Festival.
