Thanks For A Great Wild & Scenic Weekend!

Thank you all for a truly amazing weekend at the 15th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

Wild & Scenic is more than just a film festival, it is SYRCL’s largest fundraiser of the year.  It is also one of the nation’s premier environmental and adventure film festivals. We hope that after this weekend, you feel as INSPIRED and MOTIVATED as we do to go out and make a difference in your community, and the world, all year round.

This year, we selected 135 films out of more than 500 submissions. Congratulations to all of our Filmmakers and thank you for sharing your stories and inspiration with us. We couldn’t produce this world-class film fest without the support of our National Partners, Local Sponsors, Venues, the Cities of Grass ValleyNevada City, and the 600+ volunteers who donated their time and enthusiasm to the weekend’s events. For their support we are truly thankful.

And extra congratulations to our
