"Where did Bob learn this stuff? He is akin to a fountain of sage advice and a bottomless well of connections. It is clearly Bob Silvestri's passion (and EMF's) to help the filmmakers of this world make the right decisions and as a result, make it - and the good Lord knows we need more like him.  He manages to be a true pioneer and a true averter of risk at the same time. And best of all? You can trust him."

"Environmental Media Fund arranged a distribution grant at a critical stage in our project, and it made a big difference. They leave the drama for the films and know how to just roll up their sleeves and make things happen."

"The exemplary manner with which EMF accounts for the concerns of funders as well as the needs of filmmakers makes working with them a pleasure."

"As an advisor, EMF is innovative, responsive and has had a major impact on our ability as a festival, to reflect trends and relevancy for the film and television industry. EMF has redefined the meaning of the advisory role, 24/7."

"Environmental Media Fund fills a crucial gap in the media production cycle. Bob Silvestri is a "build a better mousetrap" kind of guy - always looking for fresh approaches and finding different possibilities and opportunities. And we are the very fortunate recipients of EMF's assistance."

"I cannot recommend Environmental Media Fund more strongly. At every step of the way I found them to be thorough and precise, superb at follow up, expansive in their thinking, and most importantly a caring and sensitive partner in our efforts."

    Santa Monica College

"You kept pushing the story for grabbing the audience by the lapels and not let go.  Your having wrangled with me on the direction and fate of this film has made me imagine more for it."

"You saved my creative life."
