Wild and Scenic Film Festival2019-05-08T15:02:37-04:00

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival promotes grassroots environmental activism through art and film with a carefully curated selection of environmental documentaries, shorts, and adventure films.

Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. for a happy hour, featuring an environmental expo with local organizations spreading the word about important causes in North Georgia and beyond. We will serve light appetizers and SweetWater beer will be available for purchase for guests 21 and over. This is also your chance to browse and win great raffle prizes from local outfitters, restaurants, and other businesses.

At 7:00 p.m., we will begin showing a collection of environmental and adventure films that illustrate Earth’s beauty, challenges facing the planet, and community work around the world to protect our environment. The festival is a natural extension of CRK’s efforts to encourage people to act on behalf of Earth’s natural resources. Funds raised through this event will be used to grow and sustain CRK’s Neighborhood Water Watch (NWW) program.

Tickets are on sale for $20, but increase by $10 at the door. All ticket purchases include an annual membership to CRK. Questions can be directed to hwarner@chattahoochee.org or by calling 678-696-8866.
