Ripple Effect Film Project 2020/21

The show must go on!  The 2020 Ripple Effect Film Project finalists' films are ready for the spotlight...or would that be the moonlight?  Pull out your fancy jammies and join us for a night under the stars with the stars of the films.

Drive-In for the Blue Carpet Premiere

As the sun sets on Lake Chapman, the drive-in movie theater will light up, and the show begins. To protect our health AND have fun, the 2020 Ripple Effect Films will debut as a drive-in movie at Sandy Creek Park on Saturday, March 20.  Space is limited to 65 cars, and registration is required.  Learn more about registration and event details.

Thank you for your continued patience as the Ripple Effect Film Project organizers worked to find a fun and safe way to debut the 2020 Ripple Effect Film Project finalist films.  We are committed to honoring your hard work and efforts.  Brought to you by ACC Water Conservation Office, Stormwater Management, Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful, and Leisure Services.
