Streetfilms Presents: A Reel Celebration
Only with your help can we continue to keep making powerful, innovative films which have changed the minds of elected leaders across the world and emboldened advocates and neighbors with media tools to show what our streets can be like.
We've been showcasing "best practices" in the livable streets world for nearly four years and produced over 300 informative films on eclectic topics such as physically-separated bike lanes, bus rapid transit, pedestrian plazas, complete streets, unique street transformations, and ciclovias in dozens of cities and countries. Our films have been watched over 3 million times and have been used in classrooms, embedded on blogs & websites, and watched on the big screen in thousands of places.
We do all of this inspirational work with a staff of three on an extremely modest budget. Our impact is huge: Streetfilms is changing the way many millions of transportation infrastructure dollars are spent. We're on a mission to create better neighborhoods for you and your children to walk, bike, use transit and live. You simply can't find a better value for your dollar than funding Streetfilms.
If you live in the NYC area we encourage you to attend our fundraiser "Streetfilms Presents: A Reel Celebration" on Tuesday, November 16th @ 630 PM. Our guest speaker is bicyclist Randy "The Ethicist" Cohen (see below video) and we'll be featuring a few world premiere Streetfilms! Tickets start at $50 & $100. More info and to RSVP click here.
If you cannot make it or are out of town, please consider donating to our work. We promise to work hard to keep making our streets more livable for you, your children, and your community.
