Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Travel across cultures and landscapes with 9 films about nature based recreation, culture, and how the two impact each other. Glen Canyon Natural History Association and Page High School UNITY Club present the first ever Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Page, Arizona. Visit the Page Middle School on Saturday, November 12th. Doors open at 5:30pm. Support your local student organizations at several booths serving food and beverages, learn more about the Wild & Scenic Film Festival and the environmental initiatives supported by its national sponsors, enter our raffle to win some amazing prize packages from local sponsors. Film program starts at 6:30pm with films suitable for the whole family.

From rock climbing and ultra running to snow boarding and swimming, outdoor recreation is a major part of the tourism industry in America. As nature becomes a trade commodity, it's time to start looking at home ground as not just space we occupy, but a finite global resource. Care for the landscape rests in the hands of visitors and residents alike. Whether we call a place home or a vacation spot, we are more connected to the land than we know.


Wild & Scenic Film Festival is held by the South Yuba River Citizen's League (SYRCL) and produced with independent film makers and national sponsors. All films shown at this event are part of a touring program shown nationally by groups who support education and outreach for the environment. For more information about the Wild & Scenic Film Festival and touring festivals nearby, go to wildandscenicfilmfestival.org.


THANK YOU to our regional and local sponsors for supporting this program.

The Page Wild & Scenic Film Festival would not be possible without the generous support of AZ Humanities, Page Honda Polaris, Colorado River Discovery, Adventurous Antelope Canyon Tours, and Boston's True Value.

Thank you to all the local sponsors who donated to the fundraising raffle!
