The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest film festival of its kind.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) in 2003. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of SYRCL’s landmark victory to receive “Wild & Scenic” status for 39 miles of the South Yuba River in 1999.

The event explores environmental issues through film and promotes community building, inspires stewardship and connects people with volunteerism locally. The goal of the festival is to reach more people and to increase community engagement to give middle Tennessee citizens a chance to make a change.

Sit back and enjoy, while watching films that leave you feeling inspired and motivated to make a difference in your community and the world. These environmental and adventure films illustrate the Earth’s beauty, while also showing the challenges facing our planet and the communities working to protect it. This festival connects film with broader environmental and social context and reminds us that we are participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world.
