RI Nature Video Festival to be held on February 22.

Come to the Nature Video Festival
Environment Council of Rhode Island

Environment Council of Rhode IslandOn Saturday February 22 at 2 PM the Environment Council of Rhode Island and the Rhode Island Natural History Survey will host the third Rhode Island Nature Video Festival in Doody Auditorium in Swan Hall on the University of Rhode Island campus in Kingston.  

The event started as a way to see what kind of nature videos were being made in Rhode Island by Rhode Islanders and this year there were submissions by 15 film makers and the show includes 25 short videos.  

The focus is on scenes in nature and includes trail camera videos, nest cam videos, tours through natural areas of Rhode Island, drone videos, narrated videos showing wild animals doing amazing things and a video showing sunrise and sunset colors along the shore

Founder Greg Gerritt noted, “I started making nature videos about 8 years ago and after a few years I wanted to see what others were doing and compare notes and techniques.  

“We showcase fabulous RI videos, and we also bring the video makers together to talk videos, and answer questions from the audience.  It is a great way to spend a wintry Saturday afternoon while we wait for spring to return much of the life to our countryside and parks.  “  

The Festival is Family Friendly and FREE.  Registration at the website is encouraged, but we shall accept walk ins at the event. 

After you find your way to the main entrance (Upper College Road) of URI, your best bet for parking is in the 85 Briar Lane lot behind the Higgins Welcome Center on the URI Campus. Click here for a Google map of the area.
