It doesn't take much to convince Idahoans to take a good, long look at the great outdoors—though doing that sightseeing on the big screen presents a fun twist. On Friday, Jan. 4, Boise nature lovers, sportsmen and sportswomen, activists and adventurers will be able to take in this year's best wilderness-related stories at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, which will press play at 7 p.m. at the Egyptian Theatre. Attendees will be immersed in 14 films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, and Native American and indigenous cultures. Plus, kids can get in on the fun with the Wild Child Film Festival that afternoon. The Idaho Chapter of the Sierra Club, which hosts the event, said it hopes the day will "excite, challenge and inspire" viewers.
