Wild and Scenic Film Festival - University of Utah Environmental and Sustainability Studies and Natural Resource Law Forum
The Environmental and Sustainability Studies Program and Natural Resource Law Forum are hosting this event for students and the local community.
How the Wild & Scenic Film Festival got its start
The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL, pronounced 'circle') started the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in January 2003 to promote community building within the Yuba Watershed as well as a way to explore environmental issues and educate the public through an exciting and influential medium.
Taking the festival "On Tour"
One year after the inaugural festival in 2003, different groups started asking SYRCL to bring the festival to their community. Years later, the tour continues to develop as an effective tool for bringing a community together around local and global issues in a venue accessible to a diverse group. Whether depicting the struggle for environmental justice or an educational tale about an endangered species, the films expose people to multiple perspectives and global issues. We want our Wild and Scenic Film Festival to be as big of a success as it has been in other communities.
The tour allows SYRCL to share their success with a broader audience nationwide. It is building a network to use film to inspire education. The festival's national partners have joined together to support this campaign. By showing the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to diverse audiences across the country, we will be providing a forum to help educate the public on Environmental Issues.
