Visit the Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival This Weekend #PHEFF #PhilaEnviroFilmFest


In advance of Earth Day, there is a great event this weekend in the Philly area dealing with environmental issues.  Saturday includes a family-friendly event for the kids.

April 5th – April 7th the 2019 Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival {PHEFF} will bring environmentally-focused films from across the globe to the Philadelphia Film Center, in downtown Philadelphia. 

Boasting an international slate of 54 action-packed films, this year’s Festival 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 this year cover a variety of topics spanning from shark fin harvesting in waters on the opposite side of the globe, to stories of everyday Americans fighting climate change. 

Meet filmmakers, mingle with community conservationists, attend post-screening discussions, and immerse yourself in a Virtual Reality Experience called “MY AFRICA” that takes users on a 10-minute journey through Northern Kenya, where the futures of wildlife and people are intertwined.  

On Saturday, April 6th, there will be a family-friendly program block taking place at noon. The feature film for that programming block is LOVE & BANANAS, an uplifting conservation tale that focuses on elephant rescues in Thailand. The film offers a new way of thinking about this species and shows what can be done to prevent the extinction of Asian elephants. This program block also features three student-created short films, that tackle a variety of environmentalism subjects.
