Wild & Scenic Film Festival

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest environmental film festival of its kind in North America – now being hosted in our own backyard. This powerful international series of short films are a call to action! Soul-stirring stories and grand, sweeping vistas illustrate not only the challenges facing our planet but the work communities are doing to protect the environment and the places we love. They also portray the magnetic draw of nature and the adventurous side of the human spirit.

Through a grant from national sponsor, Patagonia, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse & Museum is proud to join over 150 communities around the globe to increase a groundswell of environmental awareness and support through these powerful and creative short films. The stories give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth.

We invite you and your family to join us for these stunningly beautiful short films that make a big splash! Films will be shown outdoors at the Lighthouse on the “big screen.” Food, sodas, beer and wine will be available for purchase. All proceeds support the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum.

Tickets are $10 per person and available online beginning on February 1, 2017. Tickets purchased by phone at 561.747.8380 x101 will be held in Will Call only. Due to the limited availability of tickets, we recommend purchasing tickets early.
