As the region’s rivers begin to thaw out from record-setting cold temperatures this winter, river lovers can add a little stoke to spring’s warmth with an inspiring collection of films presented in the 2019 Wild Rivers Film Tour.
Now in its fourth year, the Wild Rivers Film Tour celebrates our connection to clean water and free-flowing rivers. Juried films document a journey down the nation’s capital river, water’s value in extreme arctic and desert climates, conserving a southern river corridor surrounded by urban sprawl, and the epic effort to create a National Wild and Scenic Rivers system.
“The Wild Rivers Film Tour bridges the divide between rural and urban watersheds. It reminds us that healthy rivers hold hidden values that humble the human spirit.” says GYC Senior Waters Conservation Associate Charles Wolf Drimal. “With River adventurers tested by tribulations, a bit of humor to debunk parochial myths, and a call to action to protect wild places, this year’s film tour is a cinematic voyage.” says American Rivers’ Northern Rockies Conservation Director Michael Fiebig.
Nine magnificent films carry the audience through 110 minutes of emotional and exhilarating cinema. The 2019 selections include: Testimony to Congress: In Defense of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, Hallowed Waters – Legacy and Lifeblood of the Big Blackfoot, The Last Green Thread, Hank Patterson’s Private Property, Reviving The Backyard: The Nation’s River, Grand Canyon Water, Shred for the South Fork, Hank Patterson’s Multi-Use Tails, and Run Wild Run Free.
The Wild Rivers Film Tour is proudly supported locally by JD High Country Outfitters, EcoTour Adventures, Jackson Hole Whitewater, Barker Ewing Whitewater, Rendezvous River Sports, Buffalo Roam Tours, Friends of the Teton River, and Teton Valley Trout Unlimited.
