Wild & Scenic Film Festival offers close up views of the environment and amazing adventures Jan. 17-21

 

 

 

Intriguing storytelling, magnificent cinematography and engaging activities take center stage at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, Jan. 17 - 21 in the culturally rich Sierra foothill towns of Nevada City and Grass Valley.

 

During its 17th annual run, the environmental and adventure film festival will feature 150 award winning films, special guests, activist workshops, intimate chats, speaker panels, outdoor excursions, art shows, a gala and award ceremonies — creating a vibrant and inspiring scene.

 

“We’re welcoming filmmakers, world class athletes, environmental experts and activists who are making a difference in the environmental and social justice movements around the globe,” said Melinda Booth, executive director of South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), which hosts and produces the festival. “It’s a tremendous kick-off for a festival that will tour nearly 250 locations this year.”

 

“Festival-goers have the opportunity to get close-up views of nature and amazing adventures, and hear from people who care deeply about our world and its people. The weekend offers entertainment and inspiration for all ages, ” said Jorie Emory, festival producer.

 

This year, three world class athletes will attend as part of the CLIF Athlete Speaker Series: professional climber Tommy Caldwell  (the first person to free climb the Dawn Wall of El Capitan), and professional snowboarders Jeremy Jones (Save Our Winters, Jones Snowboards) and Tamo Campos (Beyond Boarding, The Radicals).

 

"Our long-time national partner, CLIF BAR, has pulled together a stellar series and we are thrilled to welcome these remarkable athletes who are featured in films we’re screening," said Booth.

 

  • Tommy Caldwell will be in Grass Valley for a climbing session Saturday morning, followed by appearances at the Wild & Scenic Media Lounge in the afternoon and at the screening of his film, The Dawn Wall, Saturday evening.

 

  • Jeremy Jones is an award winning snowboarder, environmentalist and entrepreneur, and is widely regarded as one of the world’s most accomplished action sports athletes. Jones will share stories from his latest adventure and conservation film, Ode to Muir, during a Fireside Chat on Sunday afternoon.

  • Tamo Campos is a filmmaker, professional snowboarder and organizer. He also is the grandson of world renowned environmentalist Dr. David Suzuki. In 2017 he was named Canada's top environmental activist under 25. Campos will present a workshop Sunday afternoon in the Activist Center.

 

This year’s films include:

 

Sharkwater Extinction Rob Stewart, Sandra Campbell, Brian Stewart | 88 min.

A thrilling cinematic journey, Sharkwater Extinction follows filmmaker Rob Stewart as he exposes the billion dollar illegal shark fin industry and the political corruption behind it. Shark finning is still rampant and endangered sharks are now also being used to make products for human consumption. Stewart’s mission is to save the sharks before it’s too late.

 

The Dawn Wall -- In January 2015, rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson accomplished an amazing feat, becoming the first to free climb the Dawn Wall — the nearly vertical 3,000-foot rock face of El Capitan — summiting the wall in 19 days.

 

Ode to Muir -- Teton Gravity’s newest film pairs professional snowboarder, adventurer and founder of Protect Our Winters Jeremy Jones with two-time Olympian Elena Hight as they embark on a 40-mile, foot-powered expedition deep into California’s John Muir Wilderness.

 

The Radicals -- A group of professional snowboarders and surfers drift from their respective sport into the world of activism. Together, they journey across the West Coast of British Columbia, weaving a story of learning, inspiration and resistance.

 

Wilder than Wild - Fires, Forests and the Future -- The film’s creators take viewers on a journey from California’s Rim Fire in 2013 to the Wine Country fires of 2017 in a timely examination of the vicious cycle between wildfires and climate change.

 

Chandalar -- See how life changing fly-fishing expeditions connect veterans with inner-city youth, creating a new generation of leaders for environmental justice.

 

Junk -- The film chronicles a remarkable sojourn from California to Hawaii aboard a raft made from 15,000 plastic bottles to raise awareness about the proliferation of plastics in our oceans.

 

Belonging -- Nevada City artist and filmmaker Ruth Chase and cinematographer Radu Sava weave a story about this vulnerable Northern California mountain community and the people who tend it, love it and depend on it. Belonging is an initiative of Nevada County Art Council, and funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists in Communities Program.
