We are delighted to announce the much-anticipated return of the Film & Photo Festival this year.
The SWFF celebrates original short films, features, youth films, and photographs submitted by Northern B.C. residents and people from around the world who love exploring this incredible melting pot of stories, visions and perspectives that shines a light on the wonder of the Skeena Watershed.
Between 2019 to 2020, the provincial government cancelled over 1.3 million acres (nearly double the size of Metro Vancouver) of land designated under the Provincial Land Act for conservation and recreational use in northwest B.C. that residents hold dear. These cancellations put valued habitats at risk of being removed from public lands, logged or impacted by industrial development, including popular recreational areas such as Klinger Lake, Tyee Mountain, Atlin, and the Stewart estuaries.
