6th Annual Environmental Film Festival – Southern Basin Screening
The San Antonio River Authority (River Authority) will host the agency’s 6th Annual Environmental Film Fest to help commemorate National Rivers Month in June. The festival will take place June 27 at the Goliad Senior Citizen Center from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. This is a free event; however, seating is limited on a first come, first serve basis.
The River Authority is partnering once again with the South Yuba River Citizens League Annual Wild & Scenic® Film Festival to feature national and international short films about topics such as nature, adventure, wildlife, environmental justice, and conservation. The festival will also feature the screening of River Authority’s 4th Annual Watershed Wise Awards video ceremony. The video awards ceremony will recognize individuals and organizations from Bexar, Wilson, Karnes, and Goliad counties who have helped raise awareness of watershed issues relevant to SARA’s vision and mission of “inspiring actions for healthy creeks and rivers” and to “protect and enhance our creeks and rivers through service, leadership and expertise” during 2018-2019. A list of the winners can be found on the Watershed Wise section of SARA’s website.
In addition to the film screenings, the public will get a chance to visit informational tables to learn about SARA, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival sponsors and the San Antonio River Foundation. Attendees will also receive free popcorn and drinks while supplies last and can also enter a raffle to win prizes from the national sponsors of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival.
