The January festival is just one of many offerings as part of the Houston Green Film Series. The lineup in January features national and international films that awe and inspire action to protect and preserve our environment. The festival also provides a broader audience for us to share three winners of the Wild About Houston Film Festival that highlight local environmental treasures and initiatives.

The auction has some GREAT items in 2021, including a pontoon boat ride through Armand Bayou Nature Center, a private cistern tour from Buffalo Bayou Partnership, custom art made by an ambassador animal at the Delores Fenwick Nature Center in Pearland and a private tour of Deer Park Prairie with Native Prairies Association of Texas. Bidding is open on this Google Form through February 1, 2021, at noon.

2020 Wild About Houston: A Green Film Festival

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.

Congrats to “Trip Around the Sun” by SETSVN, Delores Fenwick Nature Center/City of Pearland and the Native Prairies Association of Texas for winning the 2020 festival.

Watch both the 2020 October and November Wild About Houston Film Festivals on the CEC YouTube page.
