Chesapeake Film Festival: Environmental Films Screening Schedule

0

This weekend the Chesapeake Film Festival will screen films that look at environmental issues on the Chesapeake Bay and beyond. Read below for descriptions and times.

When: Saturday, October 13

Where: Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, 213 North Talbot Street, 
St. Michaels, MD 21663 

Environmental Shorts Program: 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm Seven short films look at environmental issues, in the Chesapeake Bay and beyond.

Tidewater + Current Revolution: 2:45 pm – 4:45 pm The Festival is proud to present a double feature of films by Roger Sorkin and the American Resilience Project, including the East-Coast premiere of a new film about the transformation of America’s electric grid, “Current Revolution.” The other film, Tidewater, looks at the ravages of climate change, sea level rise and erosion on the military installations in the Tidewater area of Virginia.

Restoring The Clearwater + Edna E. Lockwood: Bottoms Up!: 4:45 pm – 7:15 pm Cannon-Brown will present a sneak preview of her short film, Edna E. Lockwood: Bottoms Up!, about the three-year restoration of an 1889 nine-log bugeye at CBMM. Edna will officially relaunch two weeks after the Chesapeake Film Festival, during CBMM’s October 27 Oysterfest.

An Island Out Of Time: 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm This is a film about a remarkable couple, Mary Ada and Dwight Marshall, whose lives on Smith Island personify Chesapeake Bay’s watermen, seafood harvesting culture and history. It’s also about the four children who chose to break with that tradition and why. Written by Tom Horton, the film – like his 1996 book, An Island out of Time – is both celebration and elegy for a place beset with rising sea levels, erosion, pollution, and harvest restrictions.

The 3rd Annual Eastern Shore Sea Glass Festival

Sea Glass Festival

catch of the day fish (2)Remember collecting sea glass on the beach as a kid? Or maybe on last summer’s vacation? Finding a great piece of sea glass is always exciting. It’s like a bit of ancient treasure; or a tiny artifact fallen off a pirate ship. But it doesn’t have to end at simply holding the smooth, wave worn gem in your hand and marveling at it. Nope. For the past couple of years, our neighbors down on the Eastern Shore have hosted an entire festival dedicated to sea glass (and related coastal art forms). Plan ahead to pop down for the weekend and catch a glimpse of some inspired (and inspiring!) work created by Maryland artisans from sea glass.
