Join us as the largest environmental film festival in the United States comes back

to Western North Carolina!

 

krull logo posterThe Western North Carolina Alliance presents the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, on tour in Asheville during the week leading up to Earth Day! For nearly a decade, the festival has been touring the country and this year the festival will make its third annual appearance in Western North Carolina on April 15.  We invite you to join us for this exciting event!

It is a festival by activists and for activists. For more than  30 years, WNCA has been a building a community to protect and restore the forests and rivers of our home. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival puts our work–and yours–into the broader environmental and social context, and serves to remind us that we’re participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world.

At Wild & Scenic, filmgoers are transformed into a congregation of committed activists, dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet. We show environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet, and the work communities are doing to protect the environment. Through these films, Wild & Scenic both informs people about the state of the world and inspires them to take action.

New this yearVIP Special Access Pre-Festival Party! 

Join us from 5-6:30 p.m. before the film festival at Tressa’s Downtown Jazz & Blues for hors d’oeuvres and an open bar, and the chance to meet Jeremy Monroe, director of the non-profit organization Freshwaters Illustrated in Eugene, Ore. Monroe will present two new films at the VIP party and will share background and insights about filming fresh waters in Western North Carolina, and the threats our fish and waters face. VIP tickets ($40/WNCA members,$55/non-members) include this special meet-and-greet, as well as reserved seating at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival.
