The festival takes place on Sept. 30

SAN ANTONIO – The Wild & Scenic Film Festival — in partnership with the San Antonio River Foundation — returns to Confluence Park for a night of environmental and adventure-focused films.

The festival showcases environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet and the work communities are doing to protect the environment, according to the San Antonio River Foundation.

Since then, the festival has partnered with organizations nationwide to spread awareness around environmental issues through filmmaking.
