Returning for the 7th year, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival will be held on May 15, 2021.

Stay tuned for more details.


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. Last year, we raised $9,000 for The Clean Lanier Equation campaign and donated more than $339 to COVID-19 relief. Thank you to all who joined us for the 6th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival!


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. 


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.  


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.
