The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call-to-action that transforms film-goers into committed activists dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet. We show environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet, and the work communities around the world are doing to protect the environment.

The program includes an introduction to High Tide in Dorchester, the latest film by David Harp, Tom Horton and Sandy Cannon Brown. This is a film on the cultural and ecological effects of rising sea level in Dorchester County. The film, an ode to a place and its people, tells the story through poetic narrative, stunning imagery, and compelling interviews with biologists, oceanographers, climate experts, ornithologists, and residents who may have to retreat in the near future because of higher water.
Our opening presentation will be held on Friday, November 11 at 6pm at Gallery 447 at the corner of Race and Muir Streets in Cambridge.
The evening begins with local fare and beer and wine from in and around the community; with each ticket purchase, guests receive one free drink ticket. New this year in Cambridge is the mystery wine raffle, where guests can take the chance on selecting their own wine bottle. All players will leave with a bottle of wine. Raffle tickets are $10 each, and wines range from $10 to $30 a bottle. Either way, you can go home a winner!
Then, the lights will dim and guests of the Cambridge film festival will enjoy a unique hour-long program of short adventure and environmental films. It is a night of films you don’t want to miss.
All proceeds support MRC’s efforts for healthier Midshore rivers.
Our special guest will be photographer Jay Fleming with a short film about his brand new photographic book, Working the Water, which chronicles the the production stages of Chesapeake Bay seafood. Working the Water is a collection of beautifully-curated photographs of seasoned watermen, scenic seascapes, weathered workboats and Bay bounty–a visual narrative of the lives of individuals whose livelihood is directly dependent upon the Chesapeake Bay. Fleming says, “I hope that giving my readers a glimpse into the lives of the watermen, boat builders and crab pickers who are behind the seafood on our plates, that there will be an increased appreciation for the work they do and, ultimately, an increased interest in the preservation of the Chesapeake Bay’s resources.”
Gallery 447 is a performance venue in the heart of downtown Cambridge with a full size movie screen. Upstairs gallery space includes beautiful art studios.
Please consider also attending the EASTON EVENT on November 18, which features all different films, local fare, and a fantastic silent auction.
