The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is here!
What a way to start the New Year! Join us for the 10th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival. This event is an annual treat for locals and visitors alike. Not only will you see world-class environmental films, little Nevada City is alive with music, art and thousands of people from al over the world!
This is the largest film festival of its kind in the US. Held annually the second week of January here in Nevada City, CA, the 3-day event is a gathering of award-winning films, filmmakers, speakers, celebrities, and activists.
The founding organization, SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizens League), www.syrcl.org is now sharing their success with other environmental groups encouraging and supporting 115 tour venues nationwide. The mission of the festival is to build a network of grassroots organizations connected by a common goal of using film to inspire activism!
In case you don’t know, SYRCL (pronounced “circle”) is the grassroots organization founded in 1983 to defend our beloved Yuba River from hydropower dams. Today it is a vibrant community organization with 3,500 members and volunteers all dedicated to keeping our beloved Yuba healthy and safe.
