Wild places sustain and define us; we, in turn, must protect them.
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped make our first hosting of the SYRCL Wild & Scenic Film Festival a night to remember. The SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizens League) Wild & Scenic Film Festival is the largest environmental film festival in North America. Together, we raised over $1500 for Kentucky Heartwood and Kentucky Mountain Justice.
Despite the cold, wet weather and heavy downtown traffic, we were completely thrilled to see over 200 people in attendance. Thirty-three new people became members and the lobby of the Kentucky Theater was such a bustle of lively conversation and activity that it was hard to get people into the theater for the films! We want to take this opportunity to thank our 2012 sponsors one more time, and we invite you to consider sponsoring the 2013 Wild & Scenic Film Festival. The theme of the 2013 festival is “A Climate of Change,” and we are looking forward to beginning the process of screening this year’s selection of award winning films. Interested in volunteering for the 2013 film fest? Let us know! We are excited about this bringing this amazing event to Lexington again.
With a growing public awareness for the environment, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival aims to increase this groundswell through inspiring and educational films which hopefully will motivate people to go out and make a difference in their community and around the world.
