Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour will be making another appearance on the San Juan Ridge at the historic North Columbia Schoolhouse near Nevada City. SYRCL and the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center have partnered to bring the local community an encore presentation of films on Saturday, November 14.

A series of shorter films will be arranged around one longer feature. The short films will include: “The Wilderness Act 50th Anniversary ” about what drove us as a nation to create the wilderness act; “Marijuana Grows and Restoration” about the harmful impact of illegal growing in national forests; and “SLOMO” about Dr.Kitchin’s radical transformation from neurologist to Pacific Beach local rollerblade celebrity.

The feature film, “Dam Nation”, is a journey across America exploring the change in our National attitude toward big dams. The film shows how dam removal has become mainstream in an effort to bring rivers back to life and return wild fish to their primeval spawning grounds. The film includes fascinating history, incredible cinematography and genuine inspiration for the future of our nation.

The doors will open at 6 pm for a reception where attendees may purchase tickets to a raffle featuring local crafts and services as well as an all-weekend pass to the upcoming 2016 Wild & Scenic Film Festival. There will be light fare and organic popcorn, drinks, and desserts on sale. The film program will show from 7 pm to 10 pm with a 15-minute intermission. Advance tickets are available at BriarPatch, Mother Truckers and online at the North Columbia Schoolhouse website.
