Plumas Arts is delighted to announce the 14th edition of the SYRCL Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Quincy on September 15th. “This year will be a hybrid event with a virtual online option and an in-person option at the Town Hall Theater,” said Jennifer Prêt, event coordinator.
Plumas Arts will screen 12 films from this year’s Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival, based in Nevada City, California. The show starts at 6.30 p.m. and will last approximately 2 hours.
“This is the perfect opportunity to reunite the family and enjoy the festival from the comfort of your home, or hang out with a friend and watch inspiring films at the Town Hall Theater. Either way, it will be a momentous time and a great support for your local arts commission. We hope you can attend and look forward to seeing you there.
