“The Wild & Scenic Film Festival kicks off PRC’s and Allegheny CleanWays’ peak season for cleaning up illegal dumpsites and recycling tough materials like televisions and household chemicals,” said Myrna Newman, Executive Director of Allegheny CleanWays. “We’re excited to screen these beautiful and award-winning films which educate citizens about the issues and inspire them to take action to protect Pennsylvania’s environment and public health!”

“We hope you can join us for this year’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival. Whether you have been an activist for years or you’ve just recently committed yourself to getting involved in our community, the Film Fest offers a chance to learn more about issues facing the world and our region. This festival promises to entertain, inspire, and educate!” according to PRC Regional Director Justin Stockdale.

Initially a project of SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizens League), the annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival works to combine beautiful and moving filmmaking and environmental issues to inspire citizens across the nation to protect the environment and take action for our local and global communities.  Since 2003, the festival has evolved into the largest environmental film festival in the nation, with the event kicking off each January in California.  This year the nationwide tour to 150+ cities – from Alaska to Alabama – will stop in Pittsburgh on Thursday, March 9th, 2017.
