Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival
BLOCK 6: RiverBlue + Shorts

This visually stunning short follows a self-professed “storm chaser” through nine states on his epic quest to capture, sky, clouds, lightning, and finally – a dramatic tornado.
ALEX WEINRESS | AUSTRALIA | 7 MIN
An intimate short of an acclaimed Australian artist who uses only recycled materials to create her interesting and detailed sculptures.
DAVID MCLLVRIDE AND ROGER WILLIAMS | CANADA | 90 MIN
Internationally renowned river advocate Mark Angelo takes us on a fascinating global journey that reveals the dark side of the fashion industry. Through harsh chemical manufacturing processes and the irresponsible disposal of toxic chemical waste, our blue jeans literally are destroying rivers around the world. RiverBlue is a stunning call to action to manufacture our clothing in a more sustainable way.
Introduction by RiverBlue Director and Executive Producer Roger Williams via Skype.
