2017 – 4th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Suffern

SPRING NEWS: ROSA4Rockland Brings Back the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to Majestic Suffern Lafayette Theatre to Celebrate Earth Day 2017

Suffern, NY – April 12, 2017 – ROSA4Rockland Inc. (“ROSA”)– an environmental 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization – is organizing the 4th  Annual Earth Day Film Festival at the historic Suffern Lafayette Theater on Thursday April 20th starting at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm).

Audiences will be inspired and motivated by the selection of films coming to Suffern from the Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival held in Nevada City, CA - the nation’s premier environmental and adventure film festival.  The festival features award-winning short films and mini-documentaries that explore spectacular natural landscapes, wildlife, adventure, the great outdoors, as well as share stories of people making a difference in the world. Funny, poignant, and important, the 2016 line-up of films is sure to convey inspiring messages to every age group.

Theatergoers are invited to come early and experience the sounds of the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ. Listen to the music while dining on specially prepared dinner boxes from participating restaurants in downtown Suffern. Dine in the Theater, a partnership between the Lafayette Theatre and the Suffern Chamber of Commerce.

See the SuffernFilmFest.com for more details about the Wild & Scenic Films,

Come to the theater to see a demo on creating backyard bird habitats.

The Gravity Vault and Wild Birds Unlimited is joined in offering discounted tickets in their store locations with Ramsey Outdoor.
