Save the planet, see a movie
If Darryl Hannah can take a break from her busy acting schedule to attend the second annual Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival, surely you can make it. Wild and Scenic, a two-day screening of films about environmental conservation, will take place at various locations in Nevada City this Friday and Saturday. Some of the films are cautionary documentaries, some are satirical send-ups and others feature breathtaking footage of natural wonders. There are shorts for kids, adventurous sports chronicles and even a repeat screening of last year’s “Best of the Festival” winner Rivers and Tides. Hannah will speak about French Fries … To Go, a documentary on the biodiesel movement, starring Hannah and activist Charris Ford, during a program of eco-humorous films on Saturday night at 7 p.m. Tickets to the festival, including a VIP reception with Hannah and the festival’s other guests, are available online at www.wildandscenicfilmfestival.org or by calling (530) 265-5961.
