“Wild & Scenic® is the next Sundance.”
Christopher Beaver, filmmaker
In 2003, riding on years of success protecting the Yuba, we decided to plan an environmental film festival. We were filling a niche in our community … and besides, we knew how to throw a good party, right?
Seven festivals later, the Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival is the largest event of its kind in the US. Our goal is to become the premiere environmental film festival in the world. Each January, we screen the most important and inspirational environmental films available today, as well as host a variety of environmental activists, filmmakers, and celebrities. Wild & Scenic® works to inspire our audiences to make positive changes for a healthier world.

Festival On Tour
The On Tour program began in 2004 because of the many requests to share the festival beyond Nevada County. Today Wild & Scenic® On Tour is shown in communities across the United States … reaching over 85 towns and cities in 2008-2009.
With a growing public awareness for the environment, the festival aims to increase this groundswell through inspiring and educational films which hopefully will motivate people to go out and make a difference in their community and around the world.
