The Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project is excited to host the Wild & Scenic Film Festival on Tour in Flagstaff, AZ on March 8th, 2013. The festival tour brings together the best of the films in an evening program that leaves people feeling inspired and motivated to go out and make a difference in their community and around the world. The theme for the 2013 festival is “A Climate of Change”. Along with our usual line-up of beautiful, engaging and eye-opening films, we will have a particular focus this year on climate change, as well as highlighting the change makers who are creating a more livable future. Featured at the tour venue in Flagstaff will be seven conservation films in three hours. Wild Things is a 39 minute film about native carnivores and humans learning new ways to coexist. In the 7 minute film Stories of TRUST: Calling for Climate Change: TRUST Arizona, meet Jaime Lynn Butler, an 11-year old Navajo artist. Jaime lives in the American Southwest where the intensifying effects of climate change have made drought the new normal. We head to the Grand Canyon, where a Canadian company is using outdated environmental studies to bring uranium mining back to the one of the world's most extraordinary natural wonders in the 6 minute film, Public Lands, Private Profits: A Grand Threat. Our final feature film of the night is titled Streams of Consequence, a 28 minute film by local photographer and filmmaker, James Q Martin and the organization Rios Libres, seeking to understand the future of energy production and environmental preservation of Chile’s spectacular Patagonia region.
Considered one of the nation’s premiere environmental and adventure film festival’s, this year’s films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation. Festival-goers can expect to see Award winning films about nature, community activism, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, Native American and indigenous cultures.
This year’s selections will not only take audiences to some of the most remote and beautiful places on the planet, but introduce them to the magnificent animals that inhabit these places and the courageous individuals who are working to protect and preserve both for future generations. The films instill a deep appreciation and a sense of wonder for the natural world that surrounds and supports us.
An opening reception with information tables by local conservation groups, drinks, food, and local music by Chuck Cheesman will connect festival attendees with local environmental issues and ways to get involved. A raffle and silent auction will benefit the work of the Grand Canyon Wolf Recovery Project and their efforts to bring back wolves and restore ecological health in the Grand Canyon region.
