For nearly a decade, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival has been touring the country and it’s coming back this summer to make its fourth annual appearance in Western North Carolina, and first in Macon County. We invite you to join us for these exciting events.
MountainTrue champions resilient forests, clean waters and healthy communities in Western North Carolina. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival puts our work–and yours–into the broader environmental and social context, and serves to remind us that we’re participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world. It is a festival by activists and for activists.
The beautiful cinematography illustrates the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet and the work communities are doing to protect the environment. It will leave you with a sense of wonder, a deep appreciation for the natural word and inspire you to take action.
This year’s lineup features films juried by the South Yuba River Citizens League which showcase the theme “A Wild Life.”
