Houston’s signature winter event, The Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour, returns to the Bayou City with its unique brand of environmental cinema on January 30 and 31, 2019. Hosted for the fifth straight year by the Citizens’ Environmental Coalition, this ever-popular film fest will be screened once again at the historic River Oaks Theatre, where up to 450 patrons each night will enjoy about ten short films each night highlighting the latest environmental issues. We selected films that showcase the links between beauty, environment, adventure, quality of life, and action.
By showing these films, CEC is working to connect individuals and organizations to create a stronger Gulf Coast environmental community.
Tickets are on sale through Eventbrite.
Local Films Telling Local Environmental Stories
CEC is using this festival to tell local environmental stories, highlight the work of CEC’s member organizations, and inspire our residents and visitors to make a difference in the environment and quality of life. To that end, in partnership with the Houston GREEN Film Series, Coastal Prairie Partnership, HNPAT, Rice Environmental Club, and CAM Fort Bend, CEC hosted Wild About Houston: A Green Film Festival, a one-night screening of local environmental films on October 17, 2018, at Rice Media Center.
The audience voted for two films to be selected for inclusion in the January 2019 festival: Little Grouse on the Prairie by Friends of Attwater Prairie Chicken Wildlife Refuge, and Gregory Lincoln Education Center by Urban Harvest.
