The 7th annual Les Bois Film Festival will take place on April 8, 2023, hosted by the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley (

Les Bois Film Festival screens nature and outdoor films inspiring viewers to forge a deeper connection with the natural world. Film screenings serve as a launching pad for building a community around conservation and wildland and working lands preservation in Idaho's Treasure Valley.

Les Bois Film Festival highlights stories from, by or about people and issues of our home state of Idaho, in addition to films from other parts of the world. Together, these films build a thread connecting conservation stories from Idaho and the U.S. to those from around the world.

The inaugural Les Bois Film Festival event, which took place in March of 2016, was hugely successful, drawing a sold-out crowd to the historic Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise. For nine years before the creation of the Les Bois Film Fest, the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley had been hosting the Wild and Scenic Film Festival's traveling program, building a sizable audience for conservation and outdoor adventure films in the region.

The festival is hosted by the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley (LTTV), a 25 year old Boise-based non-profit organization is a nonprofit organization dedicated to land preservation and the protection of our open spaces. Learn more at

Starting in 2023, the Les Bois Film Festival will be held at JUMP- Jack's Urban Meeting Place is a creative activity center in Boise, Idaho, with facilities for public meetings, workshops, and exhibition space. A collection of 52 tractors are on display at various locations in the facility.

  • We were unable to attend the festival, but excited to have not one, but two(!) films in the festival this year. From our perspective, everything ran smoothly and there was lots of communication. We'll definitely be submitting again and (hopefully) attending next time!

    I was unable to attend the festival, but we were honored to have our film, This Wild Land, screen during the Matinee! I had some family members who live in Boise attend and they spoke highly of the festival as a whole. We will definitely submit any future films and will recommend the fest to all my fellow filmmakers. Thanks Les Bois!!

  • Our film entered this year's Les Bois Film Festival, and we wanted to write to say that the staff were all very professional and helpful, and it seemed like a very well-organized event based on our communications. Unfortunately we were unable to attend, but we hope to visit in the future. Thanks!

    We were not able to attend the Festival this year, but everything seemed so very successful from a filmmaker perspective. The communication & marketing was on point and the audience seemed excited and eager to watch all the films. It was great to be connected with the local filmmakers and have an audience that cares to view our films. We were thrilled to be included and hope to make it to this festival in the future.
