Wild & Scenic Film Festival 2011

  back to blog

We’re psyched to be partnering with the Oregon Natural Desert Association to help bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to Bend this September 22 at McMenamins OSF.

Come into the shop to get your tickets ($10) or buy them online through ONDA’s website.

Why come to the festival?

The film screening will feature independent films not readily accessible to the public. Each piece has beautiful cinematography, and interesting stories to inspire the activist within us all.

Check out a couple of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival movie trailers here:

Walking the Line: A world-class thru-hiker follows 500 miles of transmission line through the west’s most remote landscapes to promote renewable energy.

The Greatest Migration: Snake River salmon travel 900 miles and climb 7,000 feet to reach their spawning grounds, but dams along their journey block their migration and may eventually cause their extinction.

This event is also an awareness raiser and membership drive for ONDA. Many Central Oregonians are not aware of all the work that ONDA does to protect rivers and designate waterways throughout Oregon’s Outback as Wild & Scenic Rivers. Become an ONDA member as part of this event, and for $20 you’ll get a membership, and a ticket to the festival. You’ll also get the Wild Desert calendar, a water bottle and entry into the new-member drawing. Sounds like a good deal!
