Film and Discussion Series

In 2015 PRC was excited to work with Allegheny CleanWays to host our wildly successful First Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival! We know that environmental films have the ability to teach us more about complex and global issues and show us exactly why we need to protect Pennsylvania’s environment.

To lead up to our Second Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival in fall 2016, we are working together to host a film and discussion series. Join us and like-minded Pittsburghers to learn more about issues such as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, water bottle bans, extensive recycling projects and much more! Stick around after each film to talk with local experts about how these issues relate to us, the Greater Pittsburgh Area, and the planet!

Tickets to all events are free, though we strongly recommend pre-registering below to ensure your seat! We also ask that you donate whatever possible so we can cover our costs and continue to host these screenings.
