through film & conversation
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest environmental film festival in the United States. It sits apart from the hundreds of festivals around the world by leaving you feeling INSPIRED and MOTIVATED to go out and make a difference in your community and the world.
It’s a festival for activists by activists. Thanks to funding from national partners, the festival goes on tour across America to reach audiences across the country. In Alabama, it is hosted by the Alabama Rivers Alliance and our partner groups across the state.
Each year, in addition to the selection of films from the national film festival, we showcase films produced locally about issues and solutions specific to Alabama and the Southeast from the prestigious Southern Exposure film fellowship program.
SOUTHERN EXPOSURE is a film series about Alabama’s incredible natural resources and important environmental issues that impact all of us. This innovative summer fellowship brings emerging filmmakers from across the country to tell authentic, engaging stories about Alabama’s environment and the people who cherish it, from the mountains to the coast.
When it comes to natural landscapes, Alabama has it all: Southern Appalachian forests, world-class rivers, ancient cypress swamps, white sandy beaches, and much more. Alabama’s incredible geographic variety and natural resources supports a stunning array of species – some found nowhere else on Earth.
