On Sunday, Nov. 14, from 4 to 6 p.m., Coastal Mountains Land and Midcoast Conservancy are hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. This online event consists of eight short documentary films made by independent filmmakers to share brave and inspiring stories. Attendees will learn about individuals around the world stepping up to protect the environment and to create healthy, resilient communities. The films provide a needed tonic to the upside-down world and will leave the audience feeling encouraged and motivated to become part of the change.
Attendees are encouraged to invite friends and family from far and wide to get tickets too, for a shared virtual experience—popcorn optional! These movies will inspire important conversations about the ways in which anyone can find a path to stewardship and activism on behalf of the places that sustain people, body and soul. Life in Midcoast Maine is a daily reminder of what is at stake in the face of a changing climate and increased development; now is the time for protection and restoration, and these films will spark passion to do good things right here at home and beyond.
Tickets are available on the Midcoast Conservancy website athttps://www.midcoastconservancy.org/events/2021-wild-and-scenic-film-festival/or the Coastal Mountains Land Trust website athttps://www.coastalmountains.org/, as is information on each of the films.
