Brian Kelley’s Menhaden Film on MPTV

Hi ES Students,

Environmental Studies alum, Brian Kelley (class of 2010), made a new documentary, Menhaden: The Most Important Fish in the Bay.  It will be airing on Maryland Public Television on Monday, April 16th at 10pm.  Some of you might remember his ES 460 film “On the Fence”, which won the CINE Golden Eagle Award.  This new film has been selected to join the Wild and Scenic Film Festival tour.  Congratulations Brian! See below for details.

Subject: Menhaden Film this Monday

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to send out a reminder that this Monday our film on the Menhaden is kicking off Chesapeake Bay week on Maryland Public Television at 10PM. I am not completely confident on this but I believe MPT is broadcast in Southern PA so Gettysburg should have the channel.

We have received some very good reviews of the film and it has already been selected to join the Wild and Scenic Film Festival tour in several cities.

Also, the film has been submitted to some larger festivals including Blue Oceans and Wildscreen so keep your fingers crossed.

Please pass the airtime information on to anyone you think might be interested.

Dan Terlizzi and I have talked about screening the film in his class before the end of the semester so if you can’t see it on Monday there may be another opportunity.
