During the festival this year, experience MY AFRICA, a virtual reality journey to Northern Kenya, where the futures of wildlife and people are intertwined.
Stand in the midst of a thundering wildebeest migration, witness a lioness snatch her prey, go nose-to-trunk with an inquisitive baby elephant—and meet a community dedicated to saving Africa’s wildlife.
The PhilaEnviroFilmFest proudly curates shorts programs for several of the city’s best-attended outdoor summer film series that reach tens of thousands [ADD BOLD] of millennials and young families: Screenings Under the Stars at Penn’s Landing (sponsored by The Delaware River Waterfront Corp), and Food & Flicks Fridays at Eakins Oval (sponsored by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy). It’s a powerful way to inspire and educate thousands of young Philadelphians about ways we can care for our planet!
The Festival partners with local cultural and educational institutions to help bring top-notch new environmental films, directors, and experts to Philadelphia. In support of the U.N. Climate Summit in September 2019, the Festival presented a one-night-only exclusive screening of the stunning new film ANTHROPOCENE: THE HUMAN EPIC to a sold-out crowd, in partnership with The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. The screening — part of a coordinated nationwide campaign –was followed by a lively panel discussion moderated by WHYY.
In 2018 and 2017, the Festival brought to Philadelphia the INTERNATIONAL OCEAN FILM TOUR, screening the year’s best ocean adventure and environmental documentaries.
