Water Crisis Films Showing in May

Updated 4 years ago

The West Virginia International Film Festival holds a special for the waters nights collection of films, Tuesday, May 13, 6-10 p.m. at the Capitol Theater , 123 Summers Street, Charleston, WV.

Sponsored by West Virginia Citizen Action Group, OVEC, and WV Rivers Coalition, the evening  will begin at 6:00pm with a screening of Watermark, a gorgeous, award-winning Canadian film shot in ten different countries on three continents about the ways in which people connect to water.

Immediately after Watermark, we will screen several short films or short "work in progress" versions of films about the water crisis made over the past few months. Filmmakers include Jason Gotterdammerung Myer, Mari-lynn Evans, Keely Kernan, Jake Fertig, Krista Bryson, Elaine McMillion Sheldon, and more. The water crisis films will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A about the films with several of the filmmakers and some water protection advocates.

If there are other filmmakers who have projects about the water crisis in the works or completed,  contact wvfilmfestival@gmail.com.
