ABOUT THE EVENT

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature through film. Whether online or in-person, the festival always brings together a unique community to share in our appreciation for the natural world.

In May 2021, more than 180 households tuned in online to watch 14 carefully curated award-winning films. $4,000 was raised through ticket sales and nearly $3,000 was donated through our silent auction. Overall, $16,000 was raised to support a healthy Chattahoochee.

Thank you to everyone who made the 7th annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival a huge success. Stay tuned for details about next year’s event!

THE FILMS

Attendees can expect to see award winning family-friendly films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy, climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture and more! We do our best to choose a variety of films – some with local interest, some “feel good” films, some “call-to-action” films, and some that make us feel connected as a global community. 

OUR WORK

The festival is a natural extension of CRK’s year-round efforts to encourage protection of our river and other natural resources. Funds raised through this event will be used to grow and sustain The Clean Lanier Equation – an initiative focused on pollution, education, and resilience in Lake Lanier communities.  

GET INVOLVED

We depend on organizations, businesses, and people from our community to make the Wild & Scenic Film Festival a success. Please, consider becoming a sponsor of this festival to help us bring the Headwaters together in celebration of our natural wonders. Your contribution will also benefit The Clean Lanier Equation.

Learn more about the benefits of becoming a sponsor for next year’s festival by contacting Mallory Pendleton, Headwaters Outreach Manager.
