What started 13 years ago as an evening of hosting inspirational shorts, has become a much-anticipated two-night production featuring some of the favorite films of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, the largest festival of its kind in the United States, with proceeds equally benefiting The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County and Stroud Water Research Center.

Audiences are taken to some of the most remote and beautiful places on the planet that instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us.

This year’s theme, (re)Generation, celebrates the power of renewal, both in our personal hopes for positive change in the world and in our collective actions for a healthier planet. (Re)Generation references the work this commitment requires—at human and landscapescales. We hope the films will refresh your own commitment to act with passion and conviction for the health of our planet and communities.

Highlights always include delicious local food and drink. 



The 2020 Wild and Scenic Film Festival will be held in memory of Brian Havertine, co-founder of Trail Creek Outfitters and an important member of the film festival team who is greatly missed.
