The Sierra Nevada Alliance invites you to celebrate Earth Day online with the Virtual Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour. 2020 marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day and now more than ever, we must spend time reflecting on and celebrating our Mother Earth.

The Sierra Nevada Alliance is proud to bring you the Virtual Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour, a way to appreciate our planet and inspire advocacy, while we shelter at home.

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour combines award-winning environmental and adventure films with the energy of local activism. Each year, films are chosen so that you are inspired to take further action regarding issues that impact the environment, and humanity.

The Sierra Nevada Alliance is offering three ticket options: Session 1, Session 2, and a Children’s Session. Each film session lasts between 45 to 50 minutes with a compilation of short films. Film Session 1 and Film Session 2 feature specially selected environmental and adventure films meant to inspire local activism in the whole family. The Children’s Film Program is specially designed to entertain a younger audience. It comes with curriculum activities to assist with your homeschooling efforts.
