Mark your calendars to join Hawaiian Islands Land Trust (HILT) as we host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on April 6 & 7 at the historic Waimea Theater. We are pleased to present this premiere travelling environmental and adventure film festival featuring award- winning films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, and indigenous cultures.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a collection of films from the annual festival held the third week of January in Nevada City, CA. Now in its 11th year Wild & Scenic focuses on films that speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. “Films featured at Wild & Scenic give people a sense of place,” says Tour Manager, Lori Van Laanen. “In our busy lives, it’s easy to get disconnected from our role in the global ecosystem. When we realize that the change we need in this world begins with us we can start making a difference. Come watch and see!”

This year’s selections in Waimea combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography, and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions for the environmental challenges that confront us locally (Saturday’s theme) and globally (Sunday’s theme).

The historic Waimea Theater serves as a backdrop for our cinematic journey into a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us. The festival is a natural extension of Hawaiian Islands Land Trust’s work to inspire people to act on behalf of the environment. BEsides movies there will be food, and door prizes.

Hawaiian Islands Land Trust is a statewide conservation organization, our mission is to protect the lands that sustain us for current and future generations through conservation of lands providing recreation and access to recreation, culturally significant lands, working farms and ranches, view planes and corridors, and habitat for native plants and animals.

Our mission ties in seamlessly to the Wild & Scenic Film Festival’s call to action to inspire people and unite communities to heal the earth. To find out more about our organization, please visit our website at
