In 2015, the Citizens’ Environmental Coalition brought the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour to Houston for the first time, selling out the first showing and sharing the festival with an audience of thousands in following years. Despite the enthusiastic reception, CEC quickly realized that, while the WSFF was inspiring and meaningful, it did not showcase local environmental stories, issues, and heroes.
So CEC decided to create its own, local green film festival.
The CEC is proud to virtually host the third annual Wild About Houston Green Film Festival on Wednesday, October 21 and Wednesday, November 18, 2020.
CEC would like to use this festival to tell local environmental stories, highlight the work of CEC’s member organizations, and to inspire our residents and visitors to make a difference in the environment and our quality of life.
Members of the LIVE screening will select one of the films shown at October’s festival and one film from November to be shown at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in January 2021. An additional “fan favorite” from either show will be nominated during December from online polling. More importantly, CEC hopes to expose a broader audience to local environmental stories and to honor the top films.
