Films Across Borders Film Festival

Maryland / DC

The Maryland/DC chapter is excited to participate in the 5th annual Films Across Borders film festival.

Join us on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at 6:30 pm when MD/DC Coastal Communities Project Manager Joe Fehrer will take part in a panel discussion following a screening of High Tide in Dorchester.

The panel will also include filmmaker Sandy Cannon-Brown; Tom Horton, author and journalist; and Alice Hill, author. The panel discussion will be moderated by Maggie Burnette Stogner, executive director, Center for Environmental Filmmaking.

High Tide in Dorchester is a film that encourages discussions and actions concerning sea level rise, erosion and climate change in Dorchester County, MD. The film creates a powerful, intimate story that looks at a worsening global threat through the lens of Chesapeake Bay’s most vulnerable county.

The Films Across Borders film festival is produced by American University in partnership with embassies, arts institutions, and environmental groups like TNC. This year’s festival focuses on Stories of Water.

Films Across Borders: Stories of Water Films Across Borders showcases critically acclaimed films, documentaries, shorts and virtual reality experiences from around the world.
