This weekend Nevada City welcomes visitors to SYRCL's Wild & Scenic Film Festival. It costs a fair amount of money, for those who didn't arrange to volunteer, but there are some events for the fiscally challenged:
Two opening receptions from 4-7pm today (APPLE Center & Mowen Solinsky gallery), workshops in City Hall Saturday and Sunday, a Pacific salmon celebration Sat eve (for some) at "TBA", and ongoing art shows, with receptions 4-6pm Saturday.
And the Saturday morning cartoons are nearly free, at $7.

Also free: a copy of January's Nevada City Advocate at Nevada City newsstands now, with An Insider’s look at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival: Chuck Jaffee reviews 12 films, from Alexandra’s Echo to Witness: Defining Conservation Photography. If you can't afford to see them, at least you can read about them.
