2019 Wild & Scenic Film Festival in INvermere

Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Invermere

SAVE THE DATE! November 19, 2022 for our 9th Wild& Scenic Film Festival in Invermere!

“The Wild & Scenic Film Festival sits apart from hundreds of other festivals by leaving you feeling more motivated to make a difference in your community. It puts our local work into the broader environmental and social context and serves to remind us that we’re participants in a global movement.” 
Cam Gillies, Festival MC and Wildsight Invermere Director

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is Wildsight Invermere’s annual fund raiser and a much-anticipated Columbia Valley event. We first hosted the festival in 2014 as a way to bring together our community to celebrate and highlight environmental stewardship and activism through the power of film.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started in Northern California in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League, a watershed advocacy group, in celebration of Wild & Scenic status granted to their local river. The festival continues as a 5-day, annual event in Nevada City, CA, and is considered to be North America’s premier environmental and adventure film festival. It travels to more than 180 communities, including ours. Both the Invermere and Creston Wildsight branches are proud to host the festival.

To inquire about volunteer or sponsorship opportunities, please email us or phone our office.
