Brought to you by Willamette Riverkeeper and Patagonia, the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival is as entertaining as much as it is a call to action. Expect an inspiring lineup of creative, independent, eco conscious adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the challenges facing our planet, and the work communities are doing to protect the environment.
Wild & Scenic both informs people about the state of the world, and inspires us to create positive change. You’ll see Red Gold, an award winning film about a controversial copper and gold mine is proposed at the headwaters of the world’s largest salmon fishery in Bristol Bay, AK. The film tells a story of remote Native American sustenance-users, commercial fisherman, sport fisherman and residence that all share the commonality of salmon fishing at the core of their existence. For the first time, all user groups have come together in opposition of Pebble Mine development.
