A batch of three short films have made to the competition lineup of the third annual Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival.
‘Our Alley Sparrows’ and ‘Serok’ by Zhivar Farajzadeh as well as ‘On the Cover’ by Yegane Moghaddam are the batch in the running at the event.
Farajzadeh’s films delve into the innocent world of children and their love to their environment.
‘Our Alley Sparrows’ is about a young boy who splits his cookie and gives crumbs to the sparrows that sit in his alley tree every day while ‘Serok’ is also an Iranian boy who helps his father as a shepherd in the summer.
Themed on environmental issues, the Philadelphia screening event will also host ‘On the Cover’ animated film which offers a bittersweet yet funny perspective on forest animals and the media.
The third annual Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival will take place Friday, April 5, through Sunday, April 7, at the Philadelphia Film Center in Center City.
This year's festival includes 10 feature films and 44 shorts. The curated selection focuses on a range of critical environmental issues, such as animal extinction and climate change.
