Check out our selected films!

Nine captivating films have been selected and packed into a two-hour program to highlight issues in our global environment that relate to forests, fresh water, recreation, climate change, environmental justice, and community.

One of the feature films – ‘Breaking Trail’ – follows Emily and her borrowed sled dog as they journey the entire Ice Age Trail in winter. She becomes the first woman and person of color to thru-hike it. The Ice Age Trail is one of only 11 National Scenic Trails in the country, is 1,200 miles long, and contained entirely within Wisconsin.

The second feature film – ‘The Beautiful Undammed’ – chronicles an inspiring story of ecological rebirth. Ten years after the largest dam removal in history on the Elwha River in Washington State, salmon populations have recovered and are transferring critical nutrients from the ocean into the forests along the Elwha’s banks, enriching the entire ecosystem. The river’s revival led to the removal of many larger dams in the region, and in the rest of the world.

The other independent films include a family of bears that have become a part of the community in a small Italian village, a professor and engineer who turn an Ohio abandoned coal mine toxic pollution into paint, an 11-year-old boy from California who is on a mission to talk about a devastating fungal disease that has led to a dramatic decline in toads and other amphibians, and more stories from California, Utah, and Cameroon.



The Wild & Scenic Film Festival 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. SYRCL organizes a flagship five-day festival each year featuring over 150 award-winning films. The home festival kicks-off the international tour to communities around the globe, allowing SYRCL to share their success as an environmental group with other organizations like the Northwoods Land Trust.
