10th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival played to a sell out crowd!

It was a festive and inspirational evening once again! Our 10th Wild & Scenic Film Festival filled Maynard's Fine Arts Theatre Place with movie-goers from throughout our watersheds and beyond. Thank you one and all for joining us.

A huge thank you to Steven Trumble, Deana Cijan and Mark Grundstrum of the Fine Arts Theatre Place for making the evening possible. We also wish to thank our sponsors (see below) for their support. And thank you to our favorite emcee EJ Labb for entertaining us. OARS is grateful for the support of the many volunteers and organizations who helped make the evening a huge success!

We look forward to seeing you next year at our 11th!

Sixteen films ranging from 2 to 21 minutes were shown. Here's a glimpse back!!

Wildlife and the Wall
We've all heard the calls from the Oval Office to "Build that wall!" Now follow filmmaker Ben Masters as he paddles one of America's most famous rivers and considers the potential effects of a border wall on wildlife and access to the Rio Grande, the only water source in a harsh desert environment.
Water Warriors
Water Warriors is the story of a community’s resistance against the oil and natural gas industry. When an energy company began searching for natural gas in New Brunswick, Canada, indigenous and white families united to drive out the company in a campaign to protect their water and way of life.
Dragging 235 lbs Uphill Both Ways
The next generation is becoming increasingly plugged into electronics and out of touch with the outdoors. This will affect future conservationism and environmental protection. A mother of four takes matters into her own hands by turning off screens and taking her kids from ignoring nature to understanding and valuing its importance.
We’ve all been that kid sitting in the back seat of our family car, wishing we were somewhere else. Watch day dreams come to life as Tom Wallisch shreds the snowy streets of Nelson, British Columbia.
