The mission of the North Dakota Human Environmental Rights Film Festival is to educate, engage, and facilitate discussion around local and world-wide environmental rights, animal rights, or climate change topics through the work of filmmakers and artists.

NDERFF will take place leading up to and through Earth Day, April 11-25, 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the festival will stream online using the Eventive platform. Films and live and pre-recorded panel discussions and Q&A sessions will be available on-demand, and audiences can experience these important conversations from the comfort and safety of their homes using their tablets, computers, or AppleTV or Roku devices.

Tickets and passes go on sale Wednesday, March 31.
