“Last Light,” part of Quincy’s Wild & Scenic Film Fest Tour, makes visual poetry of the undeniable magic of alpen-glow—the final seconds of a day’s light— that gives impossible texture and life before falling into the shadows of the Spring hours in Haines, Alaska.
The largest environmental film festival in North America is coming to the Town Hall Theatre on Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 6:30 p.m.
Plumas Arts and Plumas Corporation are proud to co-host the sixth annual SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Quincy. This is a one-evening showing of 12 films from the three-day Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival in Nevada City.
Through the big screen, discover Mount Kenya and how it is changing with the warmer climate, travel to New Zealand with the Wintu tribe of Redding to visit the lone surviving salmon from Mount Shasta, and climb El Cap with three disabled climbers.
Other films will explore genetically modified seeds and how they have impacted agro-biodiversity around the world, learn about an 11-year-old who paints more than 500 paintings to raise funds for the BP oil spill cleanup, and travel into the backcountry with an 89-year-old outdoorsman.
Join us for films, Sierra Nevada beer and a fantastic prize drawing.
Doors open at 6 p.m.; movies show from 6:30 to 9:30.
Admission is $12 at the door, $10 in advance at Plumas Arts gallery and online at plumasarts.org.
