“2018 marks the fourth year Allegheny CleanWays and PRC have hosted the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Pittsburgh.

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 8th, 2018.
