Great Peninsula Conservancy to host 17th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival

Event will be held at the historic Roxy Theatre in Bremerton, show starts at 1 p.m.

Local land trust Great Peninsula Conservancy will be coming to the historic Roxy Theatre in Bremerton Dec. 14 to host the 17th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival.

The event was started by watershed advocacy group South Yuba River Citizens League and focuses on sharing films that speak to environmental concerns and celebrations of the planet. The home festival held annually in California kicks off the international tour to communities around the globe, allowing SYRCL to share selected films with a network of grassroots organizations, like local nonprofit Great Peninsula Conservancy.

“These films ask some hard questions about the future, but they also celebrate the amazing work that is being done to protect and restore our environment,” GPC Executive Director Nathan Daniel said.

“I’m proud that GPC is creating opportunities for people to come together and learn about their roles as advocates for healthy lands and waters.”

Featured at GPC’s tour event include the films “Blue Carbon,” a close look at the role of coastal wetlands in mitigating climate change, and “Hear the Call: Salmon Nation,” a call to action for wild salmon recovery.

GPC’s film selection covers subjects exploring the work of a diverse body of environmentalists in conservation, stewardship, and recreation, according to the release. Proceeds for the event support GPC’s work to protect local shorelines, streams and forests for future generations.

Doors open at noon, with the show starting shortly after at 1 p.m. Ticket prices are $17 for adults and $12 for children if bought in advance. Tickets at the door are $20 for adults and $15 for children. For more information, visit greatpeninsula.org or call 360-373-3500.
