Wild & Scenic Film Fest

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a two-evening event presented annually by the Evanston Environmental Association (EEA) and the city of Evanston. Different movies are shown on the two separate evenings of the festival.

This is the festival's seventh year in Evanston and its popularity in past years has now led to a change in venue. The 2018 festival will take place in the 3rd floor theater of the One Rotary Center building on Sherman Avenue, allowing more people to enjoy the fest's inspirational environmental films in a larger and more comfortable space.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is organized and produced by SYRCL (the South Yuba River Citizens League), and was started in part to help environmental organizations like the EEA grow their membership.

The festival offers a line-up of the best in environmental and adventure short films covering a variety of topics relevant to those concerned about the future of our planet.
