Houston Green Films & Festivals

We invite you to join us for the Wild and Scenic Film Festival 2020 at the historic River Oaks Theatre on January 28 & 29, 2020.

The Houston Green Film Series was launched in 2010 by a coalition of non-profit, grassroots, environmental organizations. The purpose of this series is to bring awareness to the environmental crisis through the visual arts by presenting films with an environmental focus to the Houston community.

The series includes the annual screening of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour, two nights of short, inspiring, environmental films, in January; and Wild About Houston: A Green Film Festival featuring short, local, environmental videos in October.

Upcoming Screenings:

  • November 20, 2019: How to Tell your Environmental Story with Video is a panel discussion from industry experts to help our community tell stories through video. We hope you will make great films that tell the story of local environmental issues, their champions and how you can make a difference in our community to preserve our natural heritage. As films are developed, consider submitting them to the CEC for screening at the Wild About Houston Film Festival in October of 2020.
