Volunteers needed for Wild & Scenic Film Festival
Volunteer registration is now open for the 20th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, held in-person Jan. 13 – 17, 2022 in downtown Nevada City and Grass Valley and streaming online Jan. 13-23, 2022.
The South Yuba River Citizens League is hosting both a virtual and in-person fest this year which is why they are in need of a team of volunteers.
“This festival is vital to this community, this region, and the world because it inspires the kind of activism necessary to confront the environmental challenges we are facing—from the threat of species extinction to the wildfires and flooding that come with climate change,” said Melinda Booth, South Yuba River Citizens League’s Executive Director. “Volunteers are essential to making this possible.”
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is South Yuba River Citizens League’s largest annual fundraiser. Through this event the organization raises funds to protect and restore the Yuba River watershed and motivates people to become involved in environmental issues and advocacy.
“At SYRCL, we have witnessed firsthand for two decades how these movies can inspire people to take action, whether that be by signing a petition, getting more involved in advocacy efforts locally, or dedicating their career to an environmental cause,” said Booth. “This is a big part of why we host this event and have worked so hard via our On Tour Fest to share these films with audiences across the nation and the world.”
This year the festival has a vast array of exciting volunteer opportunities – from ticket sales to usher and tech crew – and many more. South Yuba River Citizens League is inviting people to volunteer and by doing so play a critical role in the festival, serve our community, and inspire thousands of attendees.
All volunteers, staff, and attendees will be required to be vaccinated to attend the in-person Fest. South Yuba River Citizens League is also implementing strict COVID-safety protocols to ensure the highest level of safety.
