More about the event:
The 2012 Riverkeeper Film Festival is an exploration of culture and community in NC. The program will highlight student activities that have had an impact on their community through working to change a policy or practice affecting water quality in the Neuse Basin. Following the reception and student showcase we will screen a feature film from Emmy Award wining Neil Hutcheson and his portrayal of fisherman in the Neuse and Pamlico Sound. It is a departure from previous film festival formats, but a great opportunity to reconnect with people in our waterway.

Created in 2005, the Neuse Riverkeeper Film Festival has expanded its audience while maintaining a friendly, intimate atmosphere by selecting local community theater venues throughout the Neuse River basin. The January 2012 schedule includes screenings in the communities of Raleigh and New Bern.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
