Frequently Asked Questions
I bought my ticket, but I haven't received a ticket in my email. Why?
You will not receive a "traditional" ticket in your email, but your confirmation email from PayPal will work just fine when you arrive. We will have a Will Call table ready at the entrance to the venue with your name on our list. Just give us your name at Will Call and we will give you your wristband for the evening!
What should I bring?
The venue is an open lawn with general admission. Please bring low back lawn chairs or a picnic blanket to sit on. The space on the lawn will be first come, first serve. If you bring a high back lawn chair, we will ask you to select a spot towards the back of the lawn so that others will be able to see. Also keep in mind that it will get chilly as the night progresses. Make sure to bring a jacket and whatever else you'll need to stay warm. And don't forget to bring $10 in cash for the state park's entry fee! Bring your preferred seat of choice, some layers, your excitement for this year’s films, and an open heart!
What are the COVID-19 protocols?
We are not mandating masks for this event, but we ask that you please wear masks whenever social distancing is not possible. There will be plenty of hand sanitizer posted around the event. Please take the opportunity to sanitize your hands as frequently as possible.
When should I arrive?
Even though the films don't start until 6:30pm, we encourage you to arrive when doors open at 4:30pm. That'll give you plenty of time to get your wristband, claim your seat on the lawn, have food and beverages, and most importantly talk to all of the wonderful conservation groups participating in the community fair. Entry to the park will close at 7:30pm, so make sure to arrive before then.
How long is the program?
The films begin at 6:30 sharp and the films are two hours long with a 30 minute intermission. We are anticipating wrapping up at about 9:00PM. If you are curious about the films being shown, you can take a look at our film program here.
Can I bring my kids?
The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is a family friendly event open to all ages. Children 13 and under are free! Bring the whole family.
Can I bring my dog?
Due to the nature of our event, we are not allowing dogs. Please help us be mindful of everyone’s experience and respectful of our proximity to the wildlife at Spring Mountain Ranch State Park.
Can I bring my own snacks?
Can I bring my own alcohol?
No, please refrain from bringing alcohol to the event. We will have alcohol available for a suggested donation inside the venue.
Where should I park?
As seen on this site map, continue through the fee booth and take your first left, following signs for Friends of Nevada Wilderness. We also have a paved parking area set aside for our Handicapped guests. When you arrive to the fee booth or general parking lot, show proper identification and you'll be directed to the designated area.
Is there a way to access the virtual recording after the day of the event?
Yes! If you purchased tickets to the virtual event, you will have access to the virtual program for five days after the event.
Why is there an entrance fee in addition to the ticket fee this year?
In addition to the cost of your tickets, you will need to pay a $10 (cash) entrance fee per vehicle to Spring Mountain Ranch State Park. This is the standard park entrance fee that directly helps to maintain the park and keep it accessible and enjoyable to both people and wildlife. We encourage you to carpool to our event if that is possible for you. Once you enter the park, there will be signs and volunteers directing you to the parking lot. The closest ATMs are at the Chevron at the intersection of Hwy 159 & Hwy 160, and the Chevron near the Albertsons on Charleston Blvd.
