The Citizens’ Environmental Coalition presents The Wild and Scenic Film Festival on Tour.

The festival consists of about 20 short documentary films that speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. Different films will be shown each night, including one film created by local groups depicting a local issue. Topics range from jaw-dropping adventure and the beauty of the great outdoors to grass-roots efforts to tackle serious problems.

Local Films Telling Local Environmental Stories
CEC is using this festival to tell local environmental stories, highlight the work of CEC’s member organizations, and to inspire our residents and visitors to make a difference in our environment and quality of life. To that end, CEC asks our local environmentalists to submit short films telling local stories. In partnership with the Houston Green Film Series, CEC will host a one-night screening of local environmental films in November 15, 2017.

Two of these films will be selected for inclusion in the January 2018 festival.  Find out more about the local film screening, criteria & how to submit a film for consideration.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
