The Houston festival is a selection of films from the 4-day festival held each year in Nevada City, CA, by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL). Their National Partners—Patagonia, CLIF Bar, Earthjustice,Sierra Nevada Brewing, Klean Kanteen, Orion Magazine, Barefoot Wine, and KEEN—help make the festival available to environmentally conscious groups across the country. Hosting The Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour helps the CEC illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet, and the work communities are doing to protect our environment. The festival is a natural extension of CEC’s work to inspire people to act.
The Festival consists of 24 short documentary films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. Different films will be shown each night, and each night will include a local environmental story. Topics range from astonishing adventure and the beauty of the great outdoors to grass roots efforts to combat environmental injustice and other serious issues.
Tickets are per night and start at $15 for members who buy tickets in advance to $20 at the door. Individuals may choose to join the CEC and receive tickets at a discounted rate. Tickets can be purchased at www.cechouston.org.
