Wild & Scenic Film Festival
Sep. 11 from 1-4 p.m. at Palms Theater, Waukee
This weekend, the Iowa Environmental Council will bring the 20th Wild and Scenic Film Festival — “where activism gets inspired,” according to organizers — to Waukee.
The festival was started by the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL, pronounced “circle”), a California activist group focused on protecting the Yuba River Watershed. In addition to the festival held in California each year, SYRCL partners with environmentally focused groups around the world to bring the festival on tour.
This year, Iowa’s event will take place at the Palms Theater in Waukee on Sunday, Sept. 11 from 1-4 p.m. The festival will feature film showings and conversations with a panel of Iowa environmental experts. Proceeds will benefit the Iowa Environmental Council.
This year’s featured films are:
I’m a Child
Civil Society: Not On Our Soil – A Climate Justice Reality
A River Reborn
National Parks “One-Star Reviews”
The New Environmentalists-From Accra to Eleuthera Island
Tickets are available now on Iowa Environmental Council’s website and range from $20-50.
IEC is excited to host the 2022 Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Sept. 11!
This year's festival features an all new line-up of inspiring films. Join emcee @kbuchtak of Iowa Outdoors at the Palms Theatres in Waukee.
