Wild & Scenic Film Festival
June 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
The Northwoods Land Trust is excited to host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival at the Three Lakes Center for the Arts on the evening of Wednesday, June 28th.
The festival is a reflection of a network of grassroots organizations connected by a common goal of using film to inspire personal reflection and activism.
Short films from across the globe will be packed into a two-hour program. The films will feature themes of climate, freshwater resources, recreation and community.
Event tickets will go on sale in May for $20/adult and $12/for youth & children.
Funds raised will support NWLT’s mission to protect local land and water resources in northern Wisconsin, and will advance special initiatives to protect undeveloped shoreland, old-growth forests and climate-resilient habitat.

2023 WILD & SCENIC FILM FESTIVAL TRAILER
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. With the support of National Partners, the festival can reach an even larger audience.
