On March 4 and 5, the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival returns to Atlanta's Tara Theater. Presented by the Georgia River Network, the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper and Georgia ForestWatch, the largest environmental film festival in North America offers six or seven films each night about our planet, with at least one tied to a local issue.
Included in the event's line-up are films about the destructive process of mining coal by blasting mountain tops, world-class kayakers making a final trek down endangered rivers around the world, and a California family's 20-year affair with urban farming. Local films include a retelling of the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper's 1995 legal battle with the City of Atlanta to overhaul its antiquated sewer system and a paddler's trek along the metro region's most vital waterway.

Advance tickets are on sale for $10 at the Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper's site. Leftover tickets will be on sale at the door. Shows start at 7 p.m. Purchase tickets for both nights and you get a discounted rate for March 23's Banff Mountain Film Festival at Georgia Tech's Ferst Center for the Performing Arts.
