Students at Appalachian State University will host “Homegrown Film Festival: A Celebration of Sustainability in the High Country” Wednesday, May 1, at 7 p.m. in Parkway Ballroom of the university’s Plemmons Student Union.

This event is free and open to the public.

Sustainable development majors will present a series of mini-documentary films that they produced to spotlight and celebrate local people and organizations working on sustainability, including: 350 Boone (climate change), Appalachian Mountain Brewery (small business sustainability), Appalachian’s Office of Sustainability (campus sustainability), Biophilic Art Installation (sustainability art), Blue Ridge Conservancy (land protection), Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture (sustainable agriculture), Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation (sustainable tourism) and National Committee for the New River (water protection).

Representatives from many of these organizations will be at the event to share information about their cause.

This event is hosted by participants in the sustainable development program course, Outreach Skills for Sustainability, including students and instructor Laura England, and is sponsored by Appalachian’s Goodnight Family Sustainable Development Program and the Office of Sustainability.

For parking information, visit, or call the parking and traffic office at (828) 262-2878.
