Wild & Scenic for the Next Generation: Sharing the Festival with Schools

Wild & Scenic Film Festival’s school programs present film programming for 2,500 students from our local community and neighboring counties. SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival Education Team curates age-appropriate, engaging and inspiring content for K-4th, 5th-8th and 9th-12th grade film screenings. Essentially, each student audience gets their very own film festival!

In years past, students have gotten to see their films on the big screen- K-8th graders at the Del Oro Theatre, and High Schoolers at Nevada Union High School’s Don Baggett Theater and in Yuba County. An important part of our school programs, Wild & Scenic creates film-specific, standards-based curriculum for participating educators from local elementary schools, middle schools and high schools for further classroom enrichment.

Our Wild & Scenic education team offers a wide array of free and low-cost programs for audiences throughout our community. We shape learning experiences meant to spark intellectual and cultural connectivity while promoting the overarching value of the arts to society. Youth and teens explore the nature of creativity in all its forms through encounters designed to hone critical thinking skills while shaping their understanding of the world. Families can together enjoy child-friendly films, performances, and hands-on visual arts activities.
