The Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival coming to Staunton

Wild Virginia is bringing together a selection of films that tell a story about our planet, our beautiful and precious wildlands, and the people who love and defend them.

The Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival will play at the Visulite Cinema on Sunday, April 30, at 7 p.m.

Purchase tickets in advance at or at the door. You can  become a member of Wild Virginia when purchasing a ticket online or at the door.

You do not need to be a member of Wild Virginia to attend.


Featured film in Staunton: Elk River

The documentary leads viewers through the migration of the elk in the Yellowstone area. Along the way, we meet the cattle ranchers and backcountry guides whose lives are linked to the fate of the elk, and we get a glimpse into the lives of other species like grizzly bears and wolves who call the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem home.

Many short films will be shown on the night:

Ace and the Desert Dog
Things Find a Way
Destiny’s Bay
Red Wolf Revival
My Haggan Dream
Parker’s Top 3 Things
Selah: Water From Stone
Elk River
The Wild President

Team of Destiny: Inside UVA Basketball's improbable run

Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham, is available for $25.

The book, with additional reporting by Zach Pereles, Scott Ratcliffe and Scott German, will take you from the aftermath of the stunning first-round loss to UMBC in 2018, and how coach Tony Bennett and his team used that loss as the source of strength, through to the ACC regular-season championship, the run to the Final Four, and the thrilling overtime win over Texas Tech to win the 2019 national title, the first in school history.


Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
