Ten years in the making, Hidden Rivers is Freshwaters Illustrated’s newest feature film that explores the rivers and streams of the Southern Appalachian region, North America’s most biologically rich waters. The film follows the work of conservation biologists and explorers throughout the region, and reveals both the beauty and vulnerability of these ecosystems.

Our Film Festival

Wild Virginia is hosting our own special film festival this year!

We will be bringing the award winning film Hidden Rivers along with several other short films that highlight our rivers, streams, and forests and how we can protect them.

May 5 in Staunton at the Visulite Cinema 6:30pm

May 6 in Charlottesville at the Violet Crown Theater 6:30pm

Tickets will go on sale in March. We expect to sell out both shows to sell out quickly this year!
