After many months of seeking and screening films, the 2017 Official Selections for SYRCL’s 15th annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival have been made. 135 films have been selected out of over 506 submissions. Close to 700 hours were spent in front of the screen to create this year’s line-up of world-class environmental and adventure films. Festival Director Melinda Booth and our all-volunteer Program Committee screened, evaluated, and debated the value of including the chosen films. A big thanks to the Program Committee: Carrie Rose d’Inzillo, Gayle Gonzalez, Jacquie Bellon, Karl Ronning, Kurt Lorenz, Leslie “Fox” Stager, Matty Law, Sharon Lane, Steve Bechwitt, and Yasha Aginsky for their contribution.
Film descriptions and many trailers are available now to give you a taste of what to expect come January. Congratulations to this year’s official selections; we deeply respect the tireless effort (and life blood and life savings) that went into creating all these films.
Tickets are on sale now so be sure to secure your spot at the festival today.
