About the Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Since 2019, the Alliance has brought communities in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Washington, DC together by hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in all four states on the same night. This spring, the Film Festival will provide warmth, inspire action, and raise hope during a time of growth and rebirth.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival brings together incredible selections of films that inform, inspire, and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation. Festival-goers can expect to see award-winning films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, Native American, and indigenous cultures.

 

The Film Festival is a natural extension of the Alliance’s mission to bring together communities, companies, and conservationists to improve the lands and waters of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. After pivoting to a virtual Film Festival in 2021 and 2022, we look forward to coming together again in 2023 – more details coming soon!

We hope you will join us in 2023  for the 5th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival on March 9 and March 16, 2023! If you’re interested in being the first to hear 2023 Wild & Scenic Film Festival updates, sign up for The Confluence!
