Film Festival

Wild & Scenic Film Festival showcases the juxtaposition of our beautiful, yet rugged environment, the unique plants and animals that inhabit it and the people who work to protect it!  

Through these stunningly beautiful films you will be inspired to explore the wild places in your own backyard and around the world. Climate change, public lands, invasive species and community advocacy are addressed in a manner that will leave you empowered to confront threats facing our rivers, oceans, forests and deserts.  Join us and become a partner in protecting the health and scenic beauty of the Rappahannock for future generations.

All students can attend for free. The event will be held in Chandler Ballroom at the University of Mary Washington.

Doors open at 1:30 pm. Films will start at 2 pm.
