Events / Wild & Scenic Film Festival

The 16th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival banner reading "Where activism gets inspired"

Join us for the 16th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival at the Belcourt Theatre!

We are excited to host another Wild & Scenic Film festival at the Belcourt Theatre, the site of our Inaugural WSFF! The event explores environmental issues through film and promotes community building, inspires stewardship and connects people with volunteerism locally. The goal of the festival this year is to reach more people and to increase community engagement to give middle Tennessee citizens a chance to make a change.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest film festival of its kind. Sit back and enjoy, while watching films that leave you feeling inspired and motivated to make a difference in your community and the world. These environmental and adventure films illustrate the Earth’s beauty, while also showing the challenges facing our planet and the communities working to protect it. This festival connects film with broader environmental and social context and reminds us that we are participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world.

Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call to action where film-goers are transformed into a congregation of committed activists, dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet. 

The 2018 Wild & Scenic Film Festivals showed an exciting range of short films captivating enough for any audience. Some of our favorites included "PROTECTED: A Wild & Scenic River Portrait" following a river paddler, author, and conservationist Tim Palmer through the enchanting waters of Oregon's Wild Rivers Coast and "Standing Tall" about how you can stop the destruction of an iconic Appalachian mountain, along with the history, culture, and memories it created. Other films explored topics like light pollution, cliff jumping and ultra sports, and the importance of wilderness.
