The 6th annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival returns to Atlanta on Sunday, March 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. The event is presented by Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, Georgia River Network and Georgia ForestWatch.

Films from the three-hour program (with a 20-minute intermission) offer something for everyone. Highlights include Carbon for Water, which examines the devastating effects of contaminated drinking water in Kenya’s Western Province; The Gimp Monkeys, about friends who vie to achieve the first all-disabled ascent of Yosemite’s iconic El Capitan; and Streams of Consequence, which chronicles an organization’s use of multimedia to protect the wild lands of Patagonia from a proposed dam. 

Tickets are $15 general admission, $12 students/seniors, $11 each for groups of eight or more. Doors open at 1 p.m. with SweetWater beer provided to adults ages 21-plus. Get more info and buy tickets online at www.chattahoochee.org .
