Suffern, NY – March 21, 2015 – ROSA4Rockland Inc. (“ROSA”)– an environmental 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization – is organizing the 3rd Annual Earth Day Film Festival at the historic Suffern Lafayette Theater on Wednesday 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 14th 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.
