Streetfilms Turns 200

It’s hard to believe, but we now have over 200 Streetfilms on the site
to choose from! Most of them really high quality productions that are
being used around the world to fight for better, more livable streets,
and a happier planet. Speaking of happy, be sure to click this sure-to-make-you-smile,
3 minute celebratory promo which features some random moments from over
50 Streetfilms, has 200 edits, and guest stars from Jan Gehl to David
Byrne. Sit back and you’ll see some of the hundreds of people we’ve
featured over the last few years. Did you make the cut?

  • SO, is this globe trotting film extravaganza working? I get fired up after watching Streetfilms, but I wonder what sort of perspective you guys (the Streetfilms creators) have on transportation in the U.S. now that you’ve been to so many places and seen so many things. Will we be able make the country’s urban streets more livable?
