Happy Wednesday MMT Fam! This weekend will find The Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival making its third trek around these local parts.
On April 5th– April 7th the festival will bring environmentally focused films from across the globe to the Philadelphia Film Center (formerly The Prince Theater) in Center City. Boasting an international slate of 54 action-packed films, this year’s event features visually stunning content and documentary style journeys, bringing the planet to the City of Philadelphia through thought-provoking films to kick off Earth Month.
The features and shorts will cover a variety of topics – spanning from illegal shark fin harvesting, Americans fighting climate change, a look at the U.S. energy grid and environmental racism. Attendees will also get a chance to meet filmmakers, mingle with community conservationists, attend post-screening discussions, and immerse themselves in a Virtual Reality Experience called MY AFRICA that takes users on a 10-minute journey to Northern Kenya, where the futures of wildlife and people are intertwined.
You can watch the 2019 festival trailer below, and visit www.philaenvirofilmfest.org to get additional info and purchase tickets.
Until next thought, Thomasena
