Wild Virginia Film Festival: Hidden Rivers

September 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Wild Virginia has exciting news!


We’re going out on our own this year and hosting our very own film festival.  This will allow us to highlight the films closest to our hearts and to our region. This year our feature film will be Hidden Rivers.


What: Wild Virginia Film Festival: Hidden Rivers

When: September 15 in Charlottesville at the Violet Crown Theater — show starts at 6:30pm.

Tickets can be purchased here: https://wildvirginia.org/our-programs/recreation/film-festival/



Ten years in the making, Hidden Rivers is Freshwaters Illustrated’s newest feature film that explores the rivers and streams of the Southern Appalachian region, North America’s most biologically rich waters. The film follows the work of conservation biologists and explorers throughout the region and reveals both the beauty and vulnerability of these ecosystems. You can watch the trailer here.


We’ll also be showing a few short films to keep up the film festival atmosphere and excitement you’ve come to expect from our sold-out shows. We hope you’ll join us again as a sponsor for these great events.  All the details are below.  Just let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to working with you!
