Wild and Scenic Film Festival Coming to Phipps October 16th!

by Melissa Harding


Allegheny Defense Project, in association with Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Heartwood, the Sierra Club, and 18 local and national co-sponsors, is proud to present the touring version of the Wild & Scenic® Film Festival, an evening of films designed to catalyze action and participation from local grassroots organizations. The evening’s program, “A Climate of Change,” collects 10 inspiring short films from leading environmental filmmakers who take viewers to Kenya, Asia, the Arctic, and across the U.S. for a wide-ranging overview of the effects of climate change.

Started in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League to promote community-building within California’s Yuba Watershed, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival has evolved into an event series that tours the U.S. each year through the partnership of local, like-minded organizations and venues. The October 16 event will mark the Wild & Scenic Film Festival’s debut appearance in Pittsburgh! Please consider joining us for an evening of inspiring short films and a celebration of local efforts to combat climate change!

October 16, 6-10pm; doors open at 5:45pm.
The festival is free and open to the public. Seating is limited; early arrival is recommended.
