The Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Los Angeles is just a week away! Here are a few reasons to buy your tickets today:

1. Get inspired. Join us as we travel across the globe to learn about an emerging ski culture in China, meet a duo in search of the perfect wave in Iceland, raft down the Chattooga River with President Jimmy Carter, and climb the Seven Summits with Wasfia, a woman from Bangladesh.

2. Feel good. Our film lineup has no shortage of amazing people working hard to protect the places they love. You’ll meet a man from Georgia changing lives while transitioning to more sustainable farming practices, an Alaskan community dedicated to maintaining a healthy river and salmon population, and Destiny, a high school student fighting against all odds for the health of her community.

3. Do good. Proceeds from the festival support the Mono Lake Committee’s Outdoor Education Center programs that bring underserved Los Angeles youth to the Mono Basin for five-day watershed education programs that change lives and make a real difference for water conservation in Los Angeles.
