The films illustrate the challenges facing our planet and the work communities are doing to protect the environment. 

This is the third year that the Kootenai Environmental Alliance has presented the Wild and Scenic Film Festival (WSFF), bringing two days of nationally recognized films that inspire environmental activism and a love for nature. 

This year’s films will combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, motivate and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.

Coeur d’Alene’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival will support KEA’s Waterkeeper Program. The Waterkeeper serves as an on-the-water advocate working to ensure that Lake Coeur d’Alene is swimmable, fishable and drinkable. The Waterkeeper Program works to protect against threats to the public’s water resources in the Lake Coeur d’Alene Watershed through enforcement, community action, education, restoration, and advocacy.

This year’s films include: In Your Hands, Sounds of Survival, (RE)CONNECTING Wild, Hear the Call, Nature Now, SANCTUARY, A Healing Journey, Paradise and What does it Take
