We are excited to announce Resilient by Nature as the Festival’s 2021 theme and guiding vision for our event, Official Selections, public programs, and On Tour program for the coming year.
Resilient by Nature is a reminder that, as individuals and communities, we are inherently resilient, drawing on our strengths, talents, and lived experiences to innovate and inspire positive change for a better world. Our theme is also a call to look to nature as a model for resiliency and seek to create solutions to environmental challenges through nature-inspired designs and strategies.
Film Submissions for the 2021 edition of the Festival continue, with an initial Early Bird deadline of May 29th. Environmental and adventure films across a range of topics will be considered, and we are especially interested in films that interpret our theme this year: Resilient by Nature. The 19th annual event will occur January 14-18, 2021 in Nevada City and Grass Valley, CA.
