Congratulations Athens for Making the Ripple Effect a Success! 

Filmmakers made a Splash at the 2016 Ripple Effect!

Thanks to all of the talented filmmakers who made a splash at this year’s Ripple Effect Film Project! Winners had a night of
fame at the 2016 “Blue Carpet Premiere” on March 19. Look for the winning films on ACTV and local theaters.

The Ripple Effect Film Project creates a ripple effect of water conservation through the creation of original 30 to 90 second films by local filmmakers of all ages and levels of experience. The project invited filmmakers to help promote water conservation and stewardship.

See the winning films on Lily Anne Phibian's YouTube Playlist
