Mark your calendars for the 11th Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Invermere on November 16, 2024!
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is Wildsight Invermere’s annual fund raiser and — truly!– the most awesome Columbia Valley gathering of the year! It’s one BIG night of films, story telling, shared food, drink, and friends (that’s YOU!).
Why the Wild & Scenic Film Festival? We first organized the festival in 2014 as a way to bring together our mountain community and celebrate environmental stewardship and our connection to nature. Ten years later, we’re still highlighting world-class films and providing a venue for inspiration, conversation, and camaraderie.
The Wild & Scenic FIlm Festival was started in California in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), a watershed advocacy group based in the Sierra foothills. Once the curtain closes on the 5-day, flagship festival in Nevada City every February, SYRCL shares its success with other community groups like ours. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of achieving Wild & Scenic status on 63km of the South Yuba River in 1999. Each year, we at Wildsight Invermere specially select a program from more than 100 films on offer and make it our unique fundraiser.
