Wild & Scenic

For 12 years, the Alabama Rivers Alliance and Alabama Environmental Council have screened films to engage and enlighten viewers about their own environment. The films showcase the natural world with breathtaking cinematography, and you can watch adventures unfold through perilous mountain climbs and kayak excursions down wild rivers. Wild & Scenic is the largest environmental film festival in the nation, with annual screenings across the U.S. The festival has been running for 18 years, and Alabama was an obvious destination for the tour due to our rich natural environments.

Southern Exposure

The films for this year’s event include four Alabama-focused productions from the Southern Exposure film fellowship. Our state is incredibly biodiverse, with a vast variety of wildlife in residence. We also have a dynamic geographical range, from white, sandy coastline to dense swamps and rolling foothills. You may see delicate Cahaba lilies, mossy oaks, misty valleys, and more as emerging documentarians celebrate the diversity of our natural world as well as the people working diligently to conserve it.

The Alabama Rivers Alliance

The nonprofit behind the Wild & Scenic Festival is a coalition of like-minded organizations all working together to conserve Alabama’s waterways. The state has more than 132,000 miles of rivers and streams running through it, and it takes the persistent efforts of dedicated Alabamians to keep them clean and safe for years to come. In 20 years of operation, the Alabama Rivers Alliance helped protect numerous waterways from ecological threats while educating the public about their own resources.
