PEC short film selected for Eco Film Forum in Philadelphia

“Philadelphia Riverfronts and Trails,” a five-minute television program produced by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, 3PPG and MiND tv, will be featured at the Eco Film Forum at the GreenFest celebration on September 7 at 3:30.

As part of the Sustainable Philadelphia series now airing on MiND tv, “Philadelphia Riverfronts and Trails” is a look at the region’s efforts to reconnect with the Delaware and Schuylkill rivers.

While shore-side activities like running and biking have long been popular, water based activities are luring Philadelphians INTO the river. Most recently, kayaking has become an urban recreation option. Hidden River Outfitters and Schuylkill River Development Corporation lead tours along the Schuylkill, while the Pennsylvania Environmental Council will soon launch a water trail map and guide for the tidal portion of the Delaware River (the river below Morrisville/Trenton experiences high and low tides and flows in different directions throughout the day).

The Greenfest Philly 2008 Eco-Film Forum is curated by Future Weather Productions. The event will feature provocative and entertaining shorts by regional filmmakers and environmental activists.  “Philadelphia Riverfronts and Trails” will be shown during the 3:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. block on water issues, at the PhillyCarShare tent at 2nd and Pine.

In addition to the film, PEC will be an exhibitor at GreenFest. Attendees can stop by 2nd and South Street from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to learn more about the Tidal Delaware Water Trail, a 56-mile trail map and guide for boaters, sailors and kayakers looking to experience the Delaware River.
