200 Streetfilms!

It's hard to believe, but we now have over 200 Streetfilms on the site to choose from! Most of them really high quality productions that are being used around the world to fight for better, more livable streets, and a happier planet. Speaking of happy, be sure to click this sure-to-make-you-smile, 3 minute celebratory promo which features some random moments from over 50 Streetfilms, has 200 edits, and guest stars from Jan Gehl to David Byrne. Sit back and you'll see some of the hundreds of people we've featured over the last few years. Did you make the cut?

PS: Oh, and while you're at it, please leave us some love in the comments section. During any recession its always good for the boss to hear feedback on how we're doing. :)

    200 Streetfilms! Congratulations!

    I'm so inspired by Streetfilms as it re-motivates me to kick some advocacy butt everytime I watch a film. You guys rock!

    I can't wait for Clarence the traffic calming robot to make his debut.

    Clarence,

    There's nothing like showing a StreetFilms to win over people who have trouble re-imagining how we can change our streets and transpo with smart, new thinking. I use your videos all the time with skeptics, and it never fails to get them thinking -- and often 'cmon over to our people-friendly side. Your videos not only show what can be done, they do it with a winning sense of humanity -- and often humor. Thanks to you and your colleagues in Livable Streets for creating such an effective repository of knowledge and information. Keep 'em coming!

    Great work. I discovered both Street Films and my other favorite bike blog the same day when you were filming at Sunnyside School in Portland. You continue to inspire people with every new video. Thanks so much for documenting and promoting the changes happening right now all over our country. I look forward to many years more of your fantastic work.

  • Jessica Roberts

    I love Streetfilms! They're inspiring, educational, fun, and they give us hope for the future of our cities. From Portland, OR - thank you for all you do!!

  • Clarence Eckerson, Jr.

    Geeez, all you folks are so nice to us! Thanks so much from the bottom of mine, Elizabeth, and Robin's collective hearts!

  • Erik

    Streetfilms is some of the best video content on the internet. Streetfilms promotes action, community and a positive outlook on the possibilities of our livable spaces. Keep up the work.

    It's not the 200 films that's a milestone; it's the tens or hundreds of thousands of people who have been stopped in their tracks, spun around, and said, "maybe things don't have to be this way."

    The things I do and the way our neighborhood is changing has a lot to do with the vision that's inspired from the Streetfilms library. Congratulations and thanks to the whole team for the work (and the fun).

    Clarence,

    Thanks to you and the Street Films team. Our efforts would be so much less without your fun spirit and ability to amplify and inspire. Thanks for all of your coverage over the years.

    Congrats to Clarence and the Streetfilms team on this milestone among your many including getting people to take notice of how they can better their communities with livable streets and inspiring them to get those improvements going - with your clear, colorful, exciting, educational and very effective presentations. Your recent showing for CB2 Manhattan has already spurred several block associations to pursue street closings! Really exciting to be part of this increasingly successful movement. Thankyou!

    Congrats! I'll do a post on TH about it :)

  • Lisa B.

    THanks for the wonderful work that you are doing.

    I love visiting trehugger and streetfilms. Web sites like these give me hope that not all is lost and that we still take back our streets and have better communities %)
