ShoreRivers and Dorchester Citizens for Planned Growth are pleased to host the 4th annual Cambridge Wild & Scenic Film Festival on February 15, 2019. The festival presents six short environmental and adventure films that illustrate the beauty of the Earth and the work that communities are doing to protect our increasingly threatened planet.

The community is welcome to Gallery 447, a performance venue in the heart of downtown Cambridge, for an evening of light local fare, beverages including beer and wine, and an hour-long program of inspiring award-winning films.

The event will include the first local preview of the most recent project by special guests Tom Horton, Dave Harp, and Sandy Cannon-Brown, a 30-minute film entitled An Island Out of Time. The filmmakers will introduce the film, which will be followed by a Q&A session. Horton and Harp will then conduct a Live Auction of a signed copy of Horton’s book, An Island Out of Time and a framed still image from the film.

Proceeds from the film festival will benefit the #SwimmableShoreRivers campaign, a water quality testing program that monitors bacteria levels in our local waterways. Community members may also support the program by sponsoring new testing sites. For more information, contact Choptank Riverkeeper Matt Pluta at or 443.385.0511 ext 203.

The evening is also an opportunity to recognize citizens, community partners, and businesses that support a cleaner and healthier Choptank River and Chesapeake Bay. River Guardian sponsors are Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay and Yacht Maintenance Company. Sustaining Sponsor is Intercoastal Trading Inc.

Doors open at 5pm for guests to enjoy a pre-show happy hour featuring local oysters donated by Stoney Cove Charters.
