The Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay, in partnership the Goddard Symposium, will host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour, at 5:30 p.m., February 13, at the Grace Milliman Pollock Performing Arts Center, in Camp Hill.
The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) started the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to promote community building within the Yuba Watershed, as well as a way to explore environmental issues through an exciting and influential medium. The Wild & Scenic festival—the largest environmental film festival in North America—celebrates its annual event each January in California and features over 125 award-winning films, plus speakers, celebrities and activists that bring a human face to the environmental movement. This home festival kicks off the annual tour reaching more than 100 communities nationwide.
With growing public awareness of environmental issues, the festival aims to find common ground with a diverse audience through inspiring and educational films that will motivate people to become involved in local groups. The event offers a lineup of films chosen from the national festival, held in January, as well as local films.
Cost: $10, includes one-year membership to the Alliance. Location: 340 N 21st St., Camp Hill. For more information, visit AllianceForTheBay.org.
