The Wild & Scenic Film Festival was started in 2003 by the South Yuba River Citizens League, a watershed advocacy group based in the Sierra foothills of California. More than 150 communities worldwide host Wild & Scenic Film Festivals to raise funds and public awareness. The films illustrate the challenges facing our planet and the work communities are doing to protect the environment.
This is the third year that Kootenai Environmental Alliance has presented the Wild and Scenic Film Festival (WSFF), bringing two days of nationally recognized films that inspire environmental activism and a love for nature.
This year’s films will combine stellar film making, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, motivate and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.
Coeur d’Alene’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival will support KEA’s Waterkeeper Program. The Waterkeeper serves as an on-the-water advocate working to ensure that Lake Coeur d’Alene is swimmable, fishable and drinkable. The Waterkeeper Program works to protect against threats to the public’s water resources in the Lake Coeur d’Alene Watershed through enforcement, community action, education, restoration and advocacy.
This year’s films include: In Your Hands, Sounds of Survival, (RE)CONNECTING Wild, Hear the Call, Nature Now, SANCTUARY, A Healing Journey, Paradise and What does it Take
March 13th at the CdA Library
Award winning filmmaker Mark Titus will be presenting his film “The Wild a sequel to “The Breach” and will be on hand for a Q&A session afterward!!!
When fishing guide/filmmaker Mark Titus learns why wild salmon populations plummeted in his native Pacific Northwest, he embarks on a journey to discover where the fish have gone and what might bring them back. Along the way, Titus unravels a trail of human hubris, historical amnesia and potential tragedy looming in Alaska – all conspiring to end the most sustainable wild food left on the planet.
An urgent threat emerges to spur fisherman/filmmaker, Mark Titus back to the wilds of Alaska, where the people of Bristol Bay and its storied wild salmon runs face devastation if a massive copper mine is constructed.
