The Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeepr’s fifth annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival will be held Sunday, March 11, at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema starting at 1 p.m. The program offers a mix of films addressing environmental issues such as energy, food systems, biodiversity, climate change and the protection and restoration of wild lands and waters.

The festival is the largest environmental film festival in North America, and 2012 will mark its fifth consecutive year in Atlanta. With a growing public awareness for the environment, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival aims to increase this groundswell through inspiring and educational films.

Each year, Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (UCR), Georgia River Network (GRN) and Georgia ForestWatch (GFW) partner to select the best of these award-winning environmental films and bring them to Atlanta in a two-and-a-half-hour program. As a tradition and special treat, our guests can enjoy complimentary SweetWater brews (for patrons 21 and over carrying a valid ID).
