Chesapeake Film Festival Environmental Reception

Friday, October 4, 2019
5:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Eastern Shore Conservation Center
114 South Washington Street
Easton, MD 21601

This reception is hosted by Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, ShoreRivers, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and The Nature Conservancy.

Part of the Chesapeake Film Festival, this reception precedes the premiere of a series of four short documentaries about Eastern Shore rivers directed by local filmmakers Dave Harp and Sandy Cannon-Brown.

The reception begins at 5:00 p.m. with heavy hors d'oeuvres, wine, and beer. A CBF film, "The Incredible Oyster Reef," will also be shown.

After the reception, proceed to the Avalon Theatre for the 7:30 p.m. screening of the documentary shorts, Effects of Rising Water in Annapolis, Chesapeake Bay Report, and Chesapeake Waterways. The films will take you on a cruise with environmental stewards on the Choptank and Miles-Wye Rivers and a paddle along Nassawango Creek and the Sassafras River. A panel discussion led by the filmmakers and representatives of the host organizations, including Joe Fehrer of The Nature Conservancy, Matt Pluta and Zack Kelleher of ShoreRivers, and Alan Girard of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, will follow the screening.

The reception is free and open to anyone holding a ticket for the films. Get your tickets at and select Environmental Shorts 1 + Reception in the list of films. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for youth (under 18) and seniors (55 and up).
