About this Event

This is a one-night screening of short environmental films from the Greater Houston Area that tell the story of local environmental issues, their champions and how you can make a difference.

The audience will vote to determine which films will be shown at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour, hosted by the CEC in January, 2021. From air quality issues to heat island mapping events to unique water conservation techniques, Houstonians have great stories to share.

After the live program, an esteemed panel will share their reaction to the films and take questions from the audience.
