Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Culpeper
Shake off the winter blues! Ski, climb, paddle and bike your way to adventure at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival. The festival showcases environmental action and adventure in beautiful but threatened places around the world. Scientists join climbers to find new species in the clifftop rainforests of Mozambique and environmentalists team with U.S. Navy Seal amputees to restore coral reefs. Local residents of environmentally-threatened communities realize what’s at stake and stand up for their rights and the places they love.
Friends of the Rappahannock’s (FOR) 6th annual film festival will be shown at two locations. On Saturday, March 18 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m the Daniel Technology Center on the Germanna Community College campus in Culpeper will host the event. The following week on Saturday, March 25 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. the festival will be held at UMW’s Dodd Auditorium to accommodate an ever-growing Fredericksburg audience.
FOR is a non-profit, watershed advocacy group in its 32nd year of protecting the Rappahannock River, from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay. Festival tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. School students are free of charge, college students free with ID. Tickets for both events can be purchased online at http://riverfriends.org/events
