Inspired by a desire to highlight and raise awareness of both pressing environmental issues and the important role of community media, PortMedia and Transition Newburyport partnered in 2012 to launch the inaugural Earth Port Film Festival.
Now in its fifth year the festival is well on its way to becoming a community tradition.
Festival goers have said:
“… what has impressed me is the quality of the films”
“ … it was so inspiring … I just couldn’t believe it.”
Proceeds from the Earth Port Film Festival are used to support the training and development of Newburyport youth and adults in the art of communicating via film and video at PortMedia.
