Go wild at Environmental Film Festival

The Earth, air, water and a menagerie of animals will be movie stars next week in the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival Tuesday and Wednesday at Columbus State University's Elizabeth Bradley Turner Center on Lindsay Drive.

Organized by Chattahoochee RiverWatch and CSU's Environmental Science program, the two-night screening will feature 13 films from a festival sponsored by outdoor-wear manufacturer Patagonia. The free movies will be shown 6:45-9 p.m. each night.

RiverWatch Director Bill Edwards says all the films are "top notch," and some have won awards at Robert Redford's Sundance Film Festival.

For more information, call Chattahoochee RiverWatch at 706-317-4837, or see a list of films at www.chattabout.org/filmfestival.html. Though the Web page says the films will be shown Sept. 19-20, those dates later were changed to Tuesday and Wednesday because of a scheduling issue.
