The 2017 Wild & Scenic Film Festival will show an exciting range of short films captivating enough for any audience. If you have dreamed of going on an EXPEDITION, you'll love the story of a man who hikes 60 days in the Utah canyon country for his 60th birthday with his dog Ace. If you consider yourself an ACTIVIST, you'll want to hear the story a teenage girl who lead her community in the fight against the building of the largest incinerator in Baltimore one mile from her school. Or, if you care about CONSERVATION, you'll be inspired by two women protecting the local caribou species from being removed by the construction of an oil pipeline.
This film festival inspires environmental activism and will motivate you to go out and make a difference in your community and the world to protect and restore rivers and clean water. Ultimately, our goal is to foster a better community understanding of the connection we share with the planet and our role as stewards to keep it healthy for generations to come.
Whether you're an explorer, activist, conservationist, naturalist, paddler, or just love the outdoors, this film festival is sure to leave you inspired and ready to get involved.
