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.

Thank you for making this year’s Wild and Scenic Film Festival our best one yet!

Not only did we sell out with advanced ticket sales, we were able to raise the funds needed to support over 18 Neighborhood Water Watch sites throughout 2020. That is a record for this event, and we couldn’t have done this without your support.

Over a dozen awe-inspiring films were included in this year’s lineup. They made us laugh, cry, and most importantly, think. The carefully selected films served as a call to action, leaving guests with a renewed sense of environmental stewardship and hope for the planet and the people working to improve it.

Stay tuned for details about next year’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival.
