Calling all Jack London fans: Trail Creek Outfitters, the outdoor clothing company based in Glen Mills, is hosting the 2015 Wild & Scenic Film Festival of short environmental movies Feb. 26 and Feb. 27.

The 8th annual festival, held at the Chester County Historical Society, will feature two nights of shorts curated around this year's theme, "A Wild Life." The purpose of the festival is to ignite movie lovers with a passion for caring about our earth and human communities. 

Each night will feature different showings, ranging from musings about what "Earth" might post on its Facebook wall to how marijuana growth is toxic to our national forests. From wacky and fun to heartfelt and inspiring, the lineup boasts a wide variety of films.

Tickets can be purchased for either night of the festival or as a package deal. The price of admission includes wine from Paradocx Vineyards and The Country Vintner wine, Dogfish Head beer and snacks from Nourish Juice Bar & Cafe. Proceeds from this year's festival benefit The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County and Stroud Water Research Center.
