Created in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL, pronounced ‘circle’), the Wild & Scenic Film Festival promotes grassroots environmental activism through art and film. Each year, we curate the the best in environmental documentaries, shorts, and adventure films for our flagship festival in Nevada City, California.
To share these incredible films with more people, we take our festival “On Tour,” partnering to produce nearly 250 events each year. Wild & Scenic On Tour hosts include a diverse array of environmental nonprofits, schools, museums, and businesses, each creating unique film festivals in their own communities and using the festival to raise funds, reach new contacts, and raise awareness of local issues.
We want the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to be as successful for other communities as it has been for our own, and in doing so inspire activism more broadly. Learn how to bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to your town.
