Wild & Scenic Film Festival to be held virtually

A still from the movie, “The women who loved giraffes,” – one of the films featured in this year’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival. The festival runs Jan. 14–24. 


For nearly two decades, the South Yuba River Citizens League has welcomed audiences to Nevada City each January for their annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival but since the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic still does not allow for in-person gatherings, the format of this year’s festival will look a bit different. 

“This year the festival is taking place as an entirely virtual experience over the course of eleven days and will feature activist workshops, an art exhibition, youth programs, as well as opportunities to interact with filmmakers and special guests,” said Eric Dunn, communications coordinator for the event.
