WSFF 2022 Tickets On Sale

Join Wild & Scenic Film Festival this January for more than 100 environmental and adventure films, including eight world premieres as well as five US premiers! This year the festival will happen as a hybrid experience taking place both in person in Nevada City and Grass Valley, CA from January 13-17 and online from January 13-23, 2022. Passes and tickets for this year’s event are now available for purchase at

For two decades, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival (WSFF) has welcomed audiences to Nevada County, CA, for its annual event each January. “We can’t wait to return with in-person programming in 2022 as part of our hybrid festival. Not having an in-person event in 2021 was a big disappointment for SYRCL and the community,” said Melinda Booth, SYRCL’s Executive Director.  “For seasoned festival attendees, however, things will be a bit different this year to prioritize community safety.“

Attendees must reserve specific film sessions and venues in advance; every event is separately ticketed. Fewer tickets will be available this year due to a reduction in the number of venues as well as reduced capacity within those venues. COVID-19 protocols will be in place, including vaccine and mask requirements for all in-person attendees including staff, volunteers, and filmmakers.

“The health and wellbeing of our small community are central to our work here at SYRCL and the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. These decisions have come as the result of many in-depth conversations with the local health department and medical professionals. We realize there are a variety of reasons why attendees may be unable or unwilling to vaccinate which is why we are happy to provide a virtual online alternative to the in-person festivities should that be the case,” Booth stated.

The festival will feature many mainstay elements including workshops at the Earthjustice Activist Center, a virtual art exhibition, youth programs, virtual EnviroFair, filmmaker Q&A sessions after in-person screenings, and opportunities to interact with filmmakers and special guests. Wild & Scenic’s 20th annual festival will continue to bring together top filmmakers, activists, and social innovators to inspire environmental awareness and action.

Passes and tickets can be purchased as gifts so we hope you will consider giving the present of inspiration this year! Tickets for the 2021 Wild & Scenic Film Festival are ON SALE NOW!
