Celebrate Earth Day 2021 at this year’s Wild and Scenic Film Festival! While it’s not possible to gather at The Goldman Theater at The Brower Center due to the pandemic, this year’s online program will include twenty of the year’s top environmental films for viewing at home. The exciting lineup is hosted by the Alameda County chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and this year’s co-hosts, The David Brower Center, Earth Island Institute, Communities for a Better Environment, and Green the Church. (All ticket proceeds go to support their work.)
The program features films about frontline communities fighting for environmental justice and restoration. Attendees will receive a bonus session of on-demand access to five films about “Wildlife at the Edge” featuring the full-length, award-winning film, “Entangled” about the effort to save endangered Right Whales. All of the films will be available for streaming from April 23-April 27.
See descriptions of all twenty of the films for the festival here. A few examples:
- Sônia Bone Guajajara, an indigenous leader fighting President Bolsonaro’s destructive policies in Brazil
- Indigenous activist Ruth Alipay Cuqui, fighting a proposed mega-dam in the Bolivian Amazon
- A group of youth environmental leaders in Bayview/Hunter’s Point.
