Ripple Effect Film Project

In a creative effort to promote water conservation and stewardship, the ACC Water Conservation Office and Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful present their annual competition for filmmakers of all ages and experience levels to submit original shorts. An afternoon kids matinee showcases finalists in grades 1–5, with a reception at 2 p.m. and a film screening at 3 p.m. The Ripple Effect Blue Carpet Premiere, showing finalists’ films in the middle/high school student and adult categories, will follow with a reception at 6 p.m. and screening at 7:30 p.m. Both programs include an awards ceremony and screening of Hidden Rivers, a series of shorts exploring the diverse aquatic ecosystems of southern Appalachia. 

2 p.m. & 6 p.m. $5.
