Philadelphia Film Society (PFS) is now a day away from its four-day Green Screen: Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival (PEFF) from March 31st - April 3rd. Hosted at the Philadelphia Film Center at 1412 Chestnut, PFS produced this festival of eleven short to feature-length films to inspire our Philly to do right by the Earth.
By introducing the fascinating explorations to the public, we can better understand the many facets of environmental justice and redirect our resources to projects such as these films.
“We hope that this strong slate of films will both appeal to and help inform audiences on critical environmental issues around the world”
-PFS Executive Director J. Andrew Greenblatt
PFS is a non-profit organization dedicated to using the film “as a powerful medium for artistic expression, a transformative force, and a catalyst for strengthening community” as written by PFS press contact. They are also the organizers of the Philadelphia Film Center (the mentioned facility), PFS Drive-In at the Naval Yard, and PFS Bourse Theater.
The themes of these documentaries and movies are deforestation, justice for wild habitats, colonialism, hunting, exploring, green activism, and more. The event will start March 31st at 7 PM with Fire Of Love, a film on two married french volcanologists researching the violent geoactive giants. Then ending April 3rd with The Territory, a film highlighting the effects of corrupt land-grabbing on the indigenous people of the Brazilian Rainforest.
PEFF requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination and masking (when not actively eating/drinking) while attending.
