STAUNTON--- The Visulite in Staunton hosted a film festival on Thursday. The focus is on the environment. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is in it's fifth year. Thursday's selections offered eight films.
Around 200 people attended the festival Wednesday night in Charlottesville. A strong crowd attended to check out a new set of films. The films are shorts, between two and 30 minutes long, and focus on the environment, wildlife, and activism.
One person in attendance also attended the showing in Charlottesville on Wednesday. He told WHSV that the films aren't just for people with an interest in the environment.
"It's really interesting what other people do, and it inspires you to just look beyond a 9 to 5 job or something like that. We have all this beauty around us, that's accessible to people, you just have to go and do it," said David Sellers, an environmental engineer.
