The 2017 Wild & Scenic Film Festival makes a big impact on Nevada City, but also helps increase awareness of so many important issues, organizations and environmental causes. The mission of the SYRCL annual film festival is a call to action, whether its environmental, energy uses, adventures, inspiring youth to get involved, saving the fish or showcasing how one individual can make a difference. The 15th annual event’s theme was “At The Edge” and included over 130 films at 10 different venues throughout Nevada City & Grass Valley with world premieres featuring food, adventure and conservation. In addition to the films the event included an art showcase, music, virtual reality lounge, food trucks, activist workshops, book signings, supper club, parties and more. There really is something for everyone at this event, whether it was listening to a fireside chat, rubbing shoulders with some of the environmental industry leaders or simply sitting and watching a film. Thank you to SYRCL and the 700 volunteers that help put this event on. The Outside Inn is a proud sponsor of the event, click here to see the 80 plus other businesses who help make this event possible.
