February 23, 2012 - The Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival is one of the largest environmental film festivals in North America, and 2012 will mark its seventh consecutive year in South Lake Tahoe, CA. With a growing public awareness for the environment, the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival – On Tour aims to increase the awareness through inspiring and educational films, which hopefully will motivate people to go out and make a difference in their community and around the world.

The 7th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival – On Tour is happy to be returning to MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa, so be sure to mark your calendar for March 9, 2012; doors open at 6:00 PM.

Hosted by the Sierra Nevada Alliance, Patagonia, and the South Lake Tahoe Earth Day Committee, the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival combines award winning environmental and adventure films with the energy of local activism. This year, we've chosen powerful environmental and adventure films, attendees are inspired to take further action regarding issues that impact our environment, ourselves and our world.

A few of the films we selected include:

With My Own Two Wheels our feature film, which weaves together the experiences of five individuals into a single story about how the bicycle can change the world—one pedal stroke at a time.

Things Worth Saving our local feature, outlining the proposal for Wild and Scenic designation for the Upper Truckee River Watershed., this film highlights the area and talks to local experts about this proposal.

We also are proud to be highlighting, Chasing Water where photojournalist Peter McBride sets out to document the flow of the Colorado River from source to sea and many more.

The Sierra Nevada Alliance is a network of conservation groups dedicate to protecting and preserving the Sierra Nevada for future generations.
