Voices From the Rail~Volution

9:26 AM PDT on October 25, 2010

Streetfilms was out in Portland at this year's Rail~Volution conference, putting our finger on the pulse of the sustainable transportation world. We spoke to a healthy dose of this year's attendees, including advocates, bloggers, planners, transit industry reps and members of transportation agencies across the country. Among those we heard from was Congressman Earl Blumenauer, who helped push Rail~Volution -- now in its twentieth year -- to national prominence in 1995. Well over a thousand folks attended the four-day event.

In addition, almost 500 people came to Portland's famous Bagdad Theater to watch a program of short films on the big screen, eight of which were Streetfilms! Our fan base continues to grow, and an event like Rail~Volution brings home how much people look to Streetfilms as an inspiration and educational tool. It's a great feeling.
