Wild & Scenic Film Festival


OARS is proud to host our 7th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, a selection of 2015 award-winning films from the nation's largest environmental film festival .

Seventeen films ranging from 2 to 20 minutes will be shown. Here's a sneak preview:

Brilliant Darkness: Hotaru in the Night:
What is the importance of darkness? Artists and scientists study firefly habitats in Japan and the US to understand their “language of light” and find ways for them to survive in urban settings.
Monarchs & Milkweed:
Take a microcosmic safari through a field of milkweed in Yosemite National Park and discover its hidden residents.
A Line in the Sand:
Park ranger, author and essayist—Edward Abbey’s great voice for the wilderness booms across the ages. If you only had 2 minutes to advocate for wilderness, what would you say?
Dryden—The Small Town that Changed the Fracking Game:
The industry kept saying: “We have the power; you have none. We are coming. Get out of the way or leave.” But Joanne and her neighbors came up with a plan to turn the tables on a powerful industry.
