Wild & Scenic Film Festival
Oct. 16, 2013
6 – 10 p.m., Doors open 5:45 p.m.
Join us for an evening of inspiring short films and a celebration of local efforts to combat climate change.
Allegheny Defense Project — in association with Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, Heartwood, the Sierra Club, and 18 local and national cosponsors — is proud to present the Wild & Scenic® Film Festival, an evening of films designed to catalyze action and participation from local grassroots organizations. The festival is free and open to the public; early arrival is recommended for best seating.
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 Oct. 16 event will mark the Wild & Scenic Film Festival's debut appearance in Pittsburgh.
