Festival Volunteering

SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature–through film. Wild & Scenic shares an urgent call to action, encouraging festival-goers to learn more about what they can do to save our threatened planet. In 2021 our flagship festival was held entirely virtually and took place over the course of 11 days from Jan. 14-24, 2021. Thank you to our 800 amazing volunteers that work together each year to host SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival.  In 2021, the festival went Virtual and so did our volunteer needs.

While we will still featured 100+ films, have great programming like workshops, visiting filmmaker and activist talks, family-friendly programs, art exhibitions, parties, and more the virtual platform means the need for volunteers this year looked different. Normally we welcome the support of over 700 volunteers to make the festival a reality. Without a physical event though, most of our volunteer needs focused on technical support for virtual festival attendees.

See you next year for our 20th anniversary event – Jan. 13-17, 2022
