The 2015 Earth Port Film Festival is Open for Submissions!
The 2015 Earth Port Film Festival will open on November 14 for submission of short environmental films on the theme of creating, discovering, inspiring, catalyzing or documenting environmental action. The festival, now in its fourth year, will be held at the Firehouse Center for the Arts in Newburyport, Massachusetts on April 12, 2015.
Film submissions will be accepted from filmmakers of all ages and awards are given for Best Short Film, Best Very Short Film, Best Youth Film and Audience Choice. Details and submission deadlines are listed on our website at www.earthportfilm.org. Winning films and other selected entries will be screened at the festival.
The Earth Port Film Festival was founded in 2012 by PortMedia and Transition Newburyport to highlight and raise awareness of both pressing environmental issues and the important role of community media. The intent of the film festival is to demonstrate the power of film in communicating about important issues.
Proceeds from the Earth Port Film Festival are used to support the training and skill development of Newburyport youth and adults in the art of communicating via film and television at PortMedia, Newburyport’s community media center. PortMedia is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides independent and original public affairs, arts, education, and government programming to Newburyport and the surrounding area.
Newburyport is a vibrant, thriving, historic New England seaport community of 17,000 people with a strong tradition of support for the arts and a commitment to the environment. It is a Commonwealth Green Community. The Firehouse Center for the Arts is a waterfront theater and cultural center in downtown Newburyport within the newly state-designated Newburyport Cultural District.
