Wild & Scenic Film Festival

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival (WSFF) is Wildsight Invermere’s annual fund raiser. It’s a night of shared food, drink, story telling, documentary films and the power of the people (that’s YOU!).  

Why The Wild & Scenic Film Festival? The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), a watershed advocacy group based in the Sierra foothills of Northern California. The organization was formed in 1983 when a small group of concerned citizens banded together to fight against several proposed dams. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of achieving Wild & Scenic status on 39 miles of the South Yuba River in 1999. The festival celebrates its annual event in Nevada City, CA, each winter featuring over 150 award winning films. SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call to action!

The films illustrate not only the challenges facing our planet but the work communities are doing to protect the environment and the places we love. The stories give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth. Once the curtain closes in Nevada City, SYRCL shares their success with other organizations nationwide by packaging the 4-day event into a one-night festival which visits over 200 communities worldwide, including Invermere. Check out the fun from last year’s WSFF here

Our 7th annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival will take place Saturday, November 21st, 2020 as a LIVE VIRTUAL EVENT. For all the details of this year’s film festival, please click here!
