Support Streetfilms: Come to Our Fall Fundraiser on November 16


Streetfilms has been showcasing best practices in the livable streets world for nearly four years, producing over 300 informative films on topics such as physically-separated bike lanes, bus rapid transit, pedestrian plazas, complete streets, 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 countless blogs and websites, and watched on the big screen in thousands of places.

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 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 vast sums are spent on transportation. We’re on a mission to create better neighborhoods for walking, biking, and transit. You simply can’t find a better value for your dollar than funding Streetfilms.

If you live in the NYC area, come out to our fundraiser “Streetfilms Presents: A Reel Celebration” on Tuesday, November 16 at 6:30 p.m.  Our guest speaker is Randy “The Ethicist” Cohen, and we’ll be featuring a few world premiere Streetfilms! Tickets start at $50 and $100. More info and to RSVP.

If you can’t make it or are out of town, please consider donating to our work. We’ll keep on working hard to make our streets more livable for you, your children, and your community.

Thank you,

Clarence Eckerson Jr
Director of Production

Give to Streetsblog and Streetfilms and Enter to Win a New PUBLIC Bike

As recently as 2007, there were no protected bike lanes in New York City, plans to enhance major bus routes were sitting on a shelf, and city transportation officials were still trying to do things like convert neighborhood commercial streets into high-speed traffic sewers. Streetsblog and Streetfilms helped change that. We raised expectations for our […]

Streetsblog and Streetfilms Are Searching for a Development Director

After three stellar years with Streetsblog and Streetfilms, our development director Christa Orth is embarking on a new chapter with the fundraising consultancy Wingo. Christa masterminded the creation of a fundraising system essentially from scratch, and it’s safe to say Streetsblog and Streetfilms would not be in the position we are today without her. If […]

Get Your Tickets to the 10-Year Bash for Streetsblog and Streetfilms

Ten years ago, Mark Gorton, Aaron Naparstek, and Clarence Eckerson started a new media venture — Streetsblog and Streetfilms.

No one had seen […]
