Wild & Scenic Film Festival’s Snyder-Killion event is in Grass Valley

SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival began in Nevada City, and it still based there. But it has been slowly expanding to Grass Valley as well.

This time, a signature event — an evening with poet Gary Snyder and artist Tom Killion — is going to be at the Del Oro Theater in Grass Valley. The Festival also utilizes the Nevada Theatre in Nevada City, revitalized in a partnership with KVMR, among other venues.

“Gary Snyder & Tom Killion will present an evening of film, conversation and poetry focused on the role arts play in the environmental movement. This special ticketed event is happening on Saturday, January 14th, 7pm at the Del Oro Theatre in Grass Valley,” according to the program released Friday.

The presentation only is $30 for passholders, and it is $45 for non-passholders. A VIP reception is $100 for passholders and $115 for nonpassholders.

You can read about Gary Snyder & Tom Killion in the “Art of Friendship” in our magazine’s current issue. The two have collaborated on a broadsheet, printed by Full Circle Press in Nevada City. A digital version of the article is here.
