Georgia environmentalists and movie buffs won't want to miss the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival on March 7, from 2-5:30 p.m. at the Tara Theater in Atlanta.

 Online ticket sales close at midnight on March 4 — go to the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper site to learn more, see film trailers and purchase tickets. For a mere $10, you'll see seven independent films addressing some of the most important environmental issues of our day — from moving personal stories to comical shorts — plus a piece on Paddle Georgia from a local filmmaker. Tickets will also be sold at the door, but the theater only holds 300 — so buying tickets in advance is recommended. Bonus: Complimentary SweetWater beverages will be available to patrons with a valid ID inside the theater. 

Films include What’s Organic About Organic?Bag It, and other selections of varying lengths. 

By attending, you'll be showing your support for UCR, Georgia River Network and Georgia ForestWatch

Doors open at 1 p.m., and there will be some fun activities prior to the films, including a visit by photographer and writer Holt Webb who will be available from noon-2 p.m. with his eco-friendly motor home to share his Vanishing America Project.

Since 2003, the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival has grown to receive local, regional, and national applause for celebrating the spirit of environmental activism and has become the largest traveling festival of its kind in North America.
