The Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival is the largest festival of its kind in the United States. Festival organizer, the South Yuba River Citizens League, screens films that inspire people to re-examine their values and behaviors, providing a context to translate these individual commitments into social action for environmental change.

At Wild and Scenic, film goers are transformed into a congregation of committed activists, dedicated to saving our increasingly threatened planet. The festival showcases environmental and adventure films that capture the Earth’s beauty, and illustrate the challenges facing our planet, and the work communities are doing to protect and heal the environment. Through these films, Wild and Scenic both informs people about the state of the world and inspires them to take action.

Films and activities take place at a variety of venues in the Sierra Nevada foothills, the perfect complement to the personal connections and networking opportunities that the festival offers to the artists, activists and community members who are advancing the global environmental movement. A favorite among filmmakers and film lovers alike, Wild and Scenic screens only the finest environmental and adventure films and hosts activists, celebrities, filmmakers, authors and speakers. The festival also features a variety of happenings in town including workshops, parties, wine tastings, café talks, book signings, and art shows.

The Festival's primary venue is located at 224 Church St. in Nevada City.
