“Together with my team of fellow Explorers Club members Stefan Kindberg, Milbry Polk and Will Roseman, I am delighted – not to mention thoroughly excited – to extend to you this formal invitation to the first ever Polar Film Festival that will be held at The Explorers Club in New York City on November 30th through December 2nd, 2012. I do hope you’ll join me to what we trust will become an annual event!” she said.
The Explorers Club – 46 E 70th Street, NYC
November 30 – December 2, 2012
The Explorers Club enthusiastically invites you to its inaugural Polar Film Festival – to celebrate Antarctica Day (anniversary of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty on December 1st, 1959) and showcase a diverse collection of feature films, documentaries and shorts that focus on the Arctic and Antarctica. The films explore the history and grandeur of Earth’s polar regions as well as the environmental challenges they and the people who live and work there are facing.
In the long tradition of The Explorers Club, you will have the opportunity to rub elbows with polar explorers, filmmakers and special guests who will share their stories and imagery as we honor their passions and spotlight their life’s work.
“Storytellers broaden our minds: engage, provoke, inspire, and ultimately, connect us.”
~Robert Redford, President and Founder of the Sundance Film Festival
