The Spokane Riverkeeper, Mountain Gear, and Patagonia are thrilled to bring the Spokane community together around local and global issues in a venue where environmental groups are able to help new activists take action. Whether depicting the struggle for environmental justice or an educational tale about an endangered species, the films expose people to forward-thinking ideas and global awareness.
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival: South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) is a watershed advocacy group that was started in 1983 by a small group of concerned citizens who banded together to fight against several proposed dams. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of achieving Wild & Scenic status in 1999 for 39 miles of the South Yuba River. After twenty-eight years, thousands of supporters and 700 active volunteers later, SYRCL is one of the largest single-river organizations in the nation and the Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest film festival of its kind in the United States.
We are working on our film list for the event. More details to come.
Thank you for your support! All proceeds benefit the Spokane Riverkeeper: For a fishable and swimmable Spokane River.
