Water Wednesday Virtual Film Festival

Sunday, October 11 - Wednesday, October 14, 2020


The Wright, in partnership with the Sierra Club, EcoWorks, Northwest Gallery of Art, Land and Water WORKS, and Detroit Future City’s Land and Water program presents the Water Wednesday Virtual Film Festival!

At The Wright we are proud to be a platform for the stories of our global community. Free and open to the public, this online event encourages participants to continue conversations about water accessibility, conservation, and climate change, with an emphasis on green stormwater infrastructure. Don't miss out, because water conservation prizes will be given away!

Thank you to Land and Water WORKS and The Erb Family Foundation for sponsoring this film festival.


Three films were selected to tell multi-faceted stories about communities focusing on change and solving their own water problems: Water & the Human Spirit ,Where the Water Runs, and Rain Barrels & Rain Gardens.


We want to translate engagement with these films into action by allowing audiences to participate in live discussions with our panelists on Wednesday, October 14th, 6:00 PM -7:30 PM.
