Make the most of your Wild & Scenic Film Fest experience by planning ahead. Familiarize yourself with choice films, check the highlights, and organize your schedule so you don’t miss a beat.
For the last 18 years we’ve welcomed you to Nevada County, CA for the Wild & Scenic Film Festival every January. This year things are different, so we are bringing the festival to you! Starting today, through January 24 you will be able to watch the 2021 lineup of films from the comfort and safety of your home.
With the festival occurring over the course of 11 days with 24-hour a day access, we’ve worked to provide you with plenty of time to enjoy everything this year’s virtual event has to offer. During the event, you will be able to enjoy all the Wild & Scenic programming on our virtual festival site. We realize this is a big change for everyone but we are here to help guide you through this new experience.
While most films will be available to watch on-demand throughout the festival, be sure not to miss our live programming, special announcements, and other happenings that will help you have a diverse festival experience, connect with your fellow festival goers, and make the most of your virtual Wild & Scenic experience.
