The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is coming to Plymouth, NH!  Join PSU’s Office of Environmental Sustainability (OES) when they host the Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour at The Flying Monkey on April 4, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a collection of films from the annual festival held the third week of January in Nevada City, CA, which is now in its 16th year! Wild & Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. “Films featured at Wild & Scenic showcase frontline activism and stunning cinematography,” says On Tour manager, Johan Ehde. “Our changing Earth is at the forefront of conversations nationally and globally. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that individuals propel the groundswell of the environmental movement. Collectively, we CAN make a difference! ” 

Wild & Scenic 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 five-day event features over 150 award-winning films and welcomes over 100 guest speakers, celebrities and activists who bring a human face to the environmental movement.

  The home festival kicks off the international tour to over 170 communities around the globe, allowing SYRCL to share their success as an environmental        group with other organizations. The festival is building a network of grassroots organizations connected by a common goal of using film to inspire activism.    With the support of National Partners: Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, CLIF Bar, EarthJustice, Klean Kanteen, Peak Design and Sierra Nevada Brewing                    Company, the festival can reach an even larger audience.

Featured at the tour event in Plymouth, NH. The festival is a natural extension of the OES's work to inspire people to act on behalf of the environment. This is the third year that the OES has presented the film festival at Plymouth State. Many thanks to the sponsors for their support and donations to this event.
