Lights, camera, action! The second online talk of our 2022-2023 Lecture Series celebrates the 10-year anniversary of the award-winning documentary Birders: The Central Park Effect with a panel discussion with filmmaker Jeffrey Kimball and some of the engaging birders he interviewed for the hit HBO film. Reunited Central Park Effect stars Anya Auerbach, Chris Cooper, Joe DiCostanzo, and Chuck McAlexander will discuss with Jeff how much has changed for New York City birding following the documentary’s release in 2012.

In the decade since the completion of Birders: The Central Park Effect, Jeff has been very active on NYC Audubon’s board of directors and with other environmental organizations, while continuing to develop creative projects of his own. He is currently serving as executive producer for an upcoming feature documentary highlighting the historic 12-hour Icelandic Women’s strike in 1975 that sparked a revolution and catapulted Iceland to the forefront of today’s fight for gender equality.


Registration required. Free.


For anyone who wishes to see Birders: The Central Park Effect, it is available on public library streaming services that use Kanopy, OverDrive, Biblio+, and Hoopla. It is also available to stream with commercials on Tubi and Xumo, and is always available to stream on Amazon for a small fee.
