FRWA’s 4th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival

FRWA is thrilled to bring the greater Farmington River Watershed community together for our 4th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival as a hybrid event. You can attend in person at the Canton Town Hall Auditorium* or as a live-stream event that you can watch with family and friends from the comfort of your own couch! Please join us Friday 7-9 PM on November 19th for an array of environmental films that will leave you inspired. This event is a benefit for FRWA and proceeds support the work we are doing to protect your river.

What are we celebrating? 62 miles of the Farmington River and Salmon Brook are Wild & Scenic! In 1994, a 14-mile stretch of the West Branch Farmington River from Hartland to Canton became a federally-designated. In 2019, the Lower Farmington River from Burlington to Windsor and the Salmon Brook received designation. This is quite the accomplishment – and we are proud of it! Come celebrate with us and learn about FRWA’s work on behalf of the river.

Join us in person at the Canton Town Hall Auditorium, 4 Market Street, Collinsville* or if you’re feeling like you’d rather enjoy the films with a fuzzy blanket on your couch, we totally get it. Join virtually!

 

Virtual festival goers, you will receive a link to watch the live streaming film program with an online chat from the comfort and safety of your own home with your family. If you missed any of the films, both in-person and virtual ticket holders can watch the films as Video on Demand for 5 days after the live event.
