The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is one of the year’s most exciting film events. We always look forward to it. Living here in the city, we can learn about, explore, and vicariously adventure all over our wild world.
Locally presented by the Bayou Land Conservancy—and sponsored by Save Buffalo Bayou (among others)—this year’s film event has gone online, like so many other events. Living in a virtual world now.
It’s easy to watch. We recommend it. All you have to do is sign up for the Bayou Land Conservancy’s newsletter, which you would want to do anyway, and they’ll send you a link to watch the films.
The Bayou Land Conservancy works to preserve the natural floodplains along rivers, bayous, and streams in our metropolitan area. We need that. They do an excellent job.
Award-Winning Texas Film
The festival was started almost 20 years ago by a group of activists in California who had succeeded in protecting their river from dams. The South Yuba River Citizens League was founded in 1983 by grassroots activists determined to protect the South Yuba River. Ultimately, they won permanent protections for 39 miles of the South Yuba River under California’s Wild and Scenic Rivers Act.
And then they created this film festival.
So sign up to watch and enjoy. Be informed about what is being done to protect our regional rivers and streams and the vital lands adjacent to them, and why that is important.
