Confluence: Earthly Films for Philadelphia

Saturday, April 20, 2024

11:00 AM-7:00 PM

This Earth Week, the Academy of Natural Sciences debuts Confluence: Earthly Films for Philadelphia – an environmentally focused film festival.

We have partnered with esteemed Philadelphia-area film organizations, including the BlackStar Projects, Bryn Mawr Film Institute, cinéSPEAK, the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival, and the Philadelphia Latino Arts and Film Festival.

This year’s weekend-long festival showcases a series of feature, short, and documentary films by local, national, and international filmmakers whose work raises awareness of water-related environmental justice and climate change issues across the globe.

Each program will feature a panel discussion with filmmakers, scientists, and advocates, illuminating how community-driven resistance and advocacy efforts help us envision and enact alternatives to the climate crisis.
