Doors open at 6 p.m., so arrive early to hang out and check out the one-of-a-kind silent auction packages and drawing prizes provided in part by local sponsors! The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League, a nonprofit river conservation organization located in Nevada City, CA in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. The organization was formed in 1983 when a small group of concerned citizens banded together to fight against several proposed dams. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of achieving Wild & Scenic status on 39 miles of the South Yuba River in 1999. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call to action! Films can serve as a potent tool to educate and inspire activism and growth, and Wild & Scenic is committed to offering programming that addresses environmental injustice, racism, and inequity as well as lack of representation in the outdoors and environmental movements. The films chosen by WSFF illustrate not only the challenges facing our planet but the work communities are doing to protect the environment and the places we love. The stories give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth. SYRCL shares their success with other organizations by taking the film festival On Tour to nearly 200 communities across the continent. The tour, now reaching over 65,000 people a year, is building a grassroots network of organizations connected by a common goal of using film to inspire activism. The festival’s five National Partners: Peak Design, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Earthjustice, Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Tangled Bank Studios, and MiiR have joined together to support this campaign. They help to bring these inspiring and provocative films to communities across the globe. This local screening of Wild & Scenic films is curated and hosted by the Idaho Chapter of the Sierra Club. This event is supported by a number of other local businesses and organizations. The Sierra Club is America’s oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. The Idaho Chapter of the Sierra Club works to build a movement of engaged residents to promote the conservation of Idaho’s natural environment and climate. Our volunteer-driven campaigns are helping move Idaho cities, utilities, and school districts toward 100% clean energy and advance regional efforts to remove the four lower Snake River dams to save Idaho’s salmon and build a clean and equitable energy future in the Northwest.
