ABOUT THE “WILD & SCENIC FILM FESTIVAL”

Initially a project of SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizens League), the annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival works to combine beautiful and moving filmmaking and environmental issues to inspire citizens across the nation to protect the environment and take action for our local and global communities.  Since 2003, the festival has evolved into the largest environmental film festival in the nation, with the event kicking off each January in California.  This year the nationwide tour to 150+ cities – from Alaska to Maine – will stop in Pittsburgh on Thursday, March 9.
