Join the Creston Valley branch of Wildsight when it hosts the Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour at the Tivoli Theatre at 7 p.m. Jan. 25.

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is a collection of films celebrating the environment. Based in Nevada City, Calif., the films visit over 150 communities, inspiring hope, love and action for our natural world. Partnering in the tour are Patagonia, Clif Bar, Sierra Nevada Brewing, Orion Magazine, Klean Kanteen, Earthjustice, Barefooot Wine and Bubbly, and KEEN.

Some of the films featured are Marie’s Dictionary, in which an indigenous elder types out her language, word by word, before it fades with her; The Ridge, an amazing bicycle ride set to Celtic music, Delta Dawn, following the Colorado River as flows, once again, to its Mexican destination; Birdsongs, listening to the language of the birds; and Nobody’s River, four young women kayak an undammed river in Mongolia.

The film festival is a natural extension of Wildsight’s work to inspire people to act on behalf of the environment.

Doors open the Wild and Scenic Film Festival On Tour open at 6:30 pm. Admission is $10 for Wildsight members and youth (18 and under), and $15 for non-member. A Wildsight lifetime membership and film festival admission is $20. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.wildsight.ca.
