The Prairie Pines Partners nonprofit and Threads – Footloose & Fancy are bringing the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to Lincoln. The Lincoln festival will present 13 award-winning short films at the Railyard Cube, 350 Canopy St. in the Haymarket, starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 26. Doors will open at 6 p.m.
The festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature through stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.
The festival was started as an annual event for South Yuba River Citizens League in California to raise funds and awareness to recover California’s wild salmon and protect the Yuba River watershed. It has gone on to become one of the nation’s premier environmental and adventure film festivals, and its films go on tour around the country, spreading the messages in the events hosted by local organizations as a platform to inspire activism in local communities. Local nature and conservation-inspired organizations will be on hand with information about their activities.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Children 12 and under are free.
