"There’s Cannes, Tribeca and Sundance. But only New Haven has EFFY." - New Haven Register


“What’s unique about this film festival is that it’s run through a university so it’s not just a film festival that’s for commerce. It’s more about an academic issue, too, so I can see why there’s a focus on issues like sustainability.” - Andrew Grace, director of Eating Alabama


"It’s not that I’m anti-environment, just anti-environmental film.... [EFFY] found at least one convert — mission accomplished." - Yale Daily News


"You are Waste Land's official favorite festival!!" - Academy Award nominated director, Lucy Walker (Waste Land, The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom)


“This has been one of the best festivals I have attended, for its organization, for its execution of its theme, for its welcoming atmosphere for filmmakers, and for the way it expanded on its films with worthwhile panels and Q&A.” - Michael Parfit, Co-Director of Saving Luna


“A roster of movies that would put many longtime festivals to shame.” - New Haven Register
