Wild & Scenic Film Festival 

Apr 9, 2016   6:00 PM- 9:45 PM     

A Sold Out Success! Thank You Sponsors and Event Volunteers!

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest environmental film festival of its kind in North America 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 give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth. They 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. The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum is proud to partner with over 140 environmental groups, nature centers, museums, and universities across the United States and Canada, to increase a groundswell of environmental support by hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival.
