Wild & Scenic Film Festival
April 21, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is coming to Ann Arbor and you’re invited. Hosted through a unique partnership between six locally based organizations focused on the environment and nature, please join Legacy Land Conservancy, Huron River Watershed Council, the Stewardship Network, Leslie Science & Nature Center, the Ecology Center, and the School of Natural Resources and Environment through the University of Michigan as we work together we come together to host the Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour at the Michigan Theater on April 21st. Hosted on the eve of Earth Day, the festival is also a celebration of our community’s commitment to come together for the benefit of local ecosystems and the planet as a whole.
Motivation to take on the world’s most pressing environmental challenges often stems from a personal connection to nature and the resources involved. Through the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, we will present several short films that will inspire festival goers to get outdoors, appreciate the natural wonders in our local and greater environment, and work toward finding common ground and collaborative solutions for environmental problems. Attendees will be empowered and encouraged to take action, become volunteers and members of participating organizations, and find personally meaningful ways to affect positive change for the natural world we inhabit.
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) in 2003. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of SYRCL’s landmark victory to receive “Wild & Scenic” status for 39 miles of the South Yuba River in 1999. Held the third week of January in Nevada City, CA, Wild & Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet.
