Please check out the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival being held by Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper (UCR), Georgia River Network (GRN) and Georgia ForestWatch (GFW). You can see the trailers here.
Several inspirational and motivational films of varying lengths will be presented on Sunday afternoon, March 7, 2010 from 2:00-5:30 PM at the Tara Theater in Atlanta. The program will highlight two longer length films among several shorter works. What’s Organic About Organic? (60 min.) looks beyond the eco-label of the grocery store to see how organic farming benefits our land and communities; the film also exposes hidden costs of conventional agriculture. In the documentary Bag It (50 min.) an average guy makes the resolution to stop using plastic bags at the grocery – but that’s just the beginning.
In addition to these and other films, the festival on tour in Atlanta welcomes photographer and writer Holt Webb and his eco-friendly motor home BABS, who will be on-site at the Tara Theater from noon until 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 7, to share his Vanishing America Project promoting conservation and educating others about the wildlife and culture we are losing.
Also, as a special treat, patrons with a valid ID will be served complimentary SweetWater beverages inside the theater.
