Sign Up to Host a Filmmaker – Last Chance!


We are still looking for generous volunteer lodging hosts to open their homes to our filmmakers and special guests during the 2018 Wild & Scenic Film Festival! The phrase “it takes a village” could not ring more true when it comes to lodging the 100+ filmmakers and special guests that visit Nevada City and Grass Valley for the duration of the film festival. It looks like we will have a large volume of guests this year, necessitating a call for more gracious lodging host volunteers!

If you are interested in becoming a lodging host for the 2018 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, check out the Lodging Host FAQ for more information, then complete our Lodging Host Information Survey

We do our best to match guests appropriately with hosts based on preferences that each party provides. All you need in order to be a host is a guest room, cottage, or other appropriate space you would be willing to share during the festival.

We would love to offer you some amazing perks if you are able to offer up the ultimate generosity of sleeping space for guests in need of some rest and relaxation. Benefits range from one session pass to festival passes depending on how many special guests are placed in your home. Details regarding placement and benefits will be finalized and sent to lodging hosts by late December/early January.

Please note, we cannot guarantee that your generosity will result in a placement, it is dependent upon how many filmmakers are able to attend.  We aim to finalize placements by late December.  Thanks for your understanding.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Festival Liaison Jess Swigonski: (530) 265-5961 x 219
