Wild & Scenic Film Festival - 2015

Sunday, February 8th
2:00-5:00 p.m. 
The Blue Note - Columbia, MO

This was our fifth year hosting this event at The Blue Note, and it was the best yet. Despite some really beautiful weather, over 290 visitors filled the venue to screen a diverse slate of films, feast on amazing treats baked up by River Relief volunteers and raise funds for Missouri River Relief. Plus we were treated to music from Two Bit Steve, the new duo featuring local musical legends Stephen Andsager and John Galbraith.

Thanks to many silent auction donations from a long list of community members and local businesses, we raised over $5,700 for Missouri River Relief's local clean-up and education projects.

The event was hosted by Missouri River Relief and The Blue Note with support from the Alpine Shop and donations from a long list of local businesses, artists and friends (see the full list on the right). In addition, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival is supported by several National Sponsors, listed on the right.
