This was our fourth year hosting the Wild & Scenic Film Festival at The Blue Note in Columbia, MO, and it was a great success! On a cold, snowy Sunday afternoon, 250 people 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. Thanks to many silent auction donations from a long list of community members and local businesses, we raised almost $6,000 for Missouri River Relief's local clean-up and education projects.

Our theme this year was the connection between humans and the world we share.

See photos from the event here.
