Don’t miss the 2013 Wild & Scenic Film Festival returning to Portland with another incredible selection of films to change your world.
Your ticket includes one FREE entry into our raffle drawing and a chance to WIN a sea kayak, REI tent, and Patagonia gear!
Hosted by Willamette Riverkeeper, this environmental and adventure film fest both informs people about the state of the world and inspires them to take action.
In addition to thought provoking selections from Wild & Scenic, we are thrilled to feature the exclusive Oregon premier of the riveting 2013 documentary film Lost Rivers , a subterranean adventure exploring the past, present and future of lost urban rivers around the globe.
Once flowing through nearly every developed city in the world, lost rivers provide the infrastructure upon which our modern metropolises were built. In this adventurous and revelatory look into the disappearance and recent resurfacing of these historic waterways, Lost Rivers leads us down the drain into vast underground museums of urban development. Guiding us through the hidden river networks of London, Brescia (Italy), Montreal and Toronto, intrepid groups of subterranean explorers known as “drainers” reveal the buried waterways that house the secrets of each city’s past. Exploring recent initiatives to resurface and revitalize these forgotten waterways in Yonkers and Seoul, the fascinating Lost Rivers brings to life an aspect of urban ecology that has long been kept secret.
Considered one of the nation’s premiere environmental and adventure film festivals, this year’s Wild & Scenic films combine stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation. Festival-goers can expect to see Award winning films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, Native American and indigenous cultures.
