Wild & Scenic Film Festival
The 2nd Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival is coming to Collinsville, CT on November 2nd, 2019!
FRWA will be hosting our 2nd annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival right near the Farmington River in the historic Town Hall Auditorium in the center of Collinsville. Two major events are happening in 2019, making the film festival a perfect opportunity for strong local messaging: It is the 25th anniversary of the West Branch of the Farmington River receiving Wild & Scenic River designation, and, the Lower Farmington River and Salmon Brook were protected this March -- designating 62 new miles as Wild & Scenic!
Run Wild Run Free: 50 Years of Wild and Scenic Rivers, is our featured film. The curated collection of short documentaries span the topics of fly fishing, whitewater paddling, biodiversity, land preservation, environmental activism and more. It will be a fun and illuminating evening with guest speakers, light refreshments and a raffle. The festival is a natural extension of FRWA’s work to inspire people to act on behalf of the Farmington River.
