April 3, 2017 from 6 to 9 p.m. - Culp Auditorium
The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is a national event that takes place each year. The festival begins in Nevada City, California in January and then goes "on tour" across the country.
The festival is hosted by numerous groups and includes a wide variety of environmental films. The ETSU Department of Sustainability has hosted the festival in partnership with other campus departments and community non-profits since 2015.
In addition to the films, an Enviro-Fair has been held to showcase the activities and efforts of an array of environmentally-related groups from the community.
The theme of the 2017 festival is "At The Edge," a wide-ranging exploration of communities and ecosystems in peril, and people and places at the ragged edge of adventure.
The films amaze, educate, and inspire through their attention to nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, and agriculture.
Learn more about the Wild and Scenic Film Festival at the festival's website.
