American University’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking

The primary focus of American University’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking is to engage communities and increase people’s understanding of the natural world.

Their programs educate students about environmental conservation and include:

  • Classroom in the Wild: Chesapeake Bay, which enables students to make films on this critically important ecosystem and the species that depend on it. The class offers students a hands-on learning experience and filmmaking opportunities that cannot be achieved in a traditional classroom setting.
  • Weekly Center-sponsored lectures at American University, featuring renowned environmental and wildlife experts who speak to students and DC area residents about achieving constructive change through filmmaking.
  • Each year, the Center Scholars program awards the most deserving master’s students $1,500 each as they enter the second year of their masters and began their thesis projects.
