The Wild & Scenic Film Festival puts local environmental activism into broader environmental and social contexts, and serves to remind us that we’re participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world.

Chris Lang of Organ Mountain Outfitters will MC the evening with over a dozen short films and a great raffle with giveaways from national and local sponsors.

Here is a sneak peek of the program:

Avanyu: Native Waters – Rio Grande | The Wild & Scenic Rio Grande River is the lifeblood of New Mexico. But for Tesuque Pueblo member Louie Hena and his family, the river is more than an office, more than a provider, it is home. In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act, happening in 2018, Louie urges us all to protect more wild rivers.
Sagebrush Sisters | This film follows three intrepid women, from ages 65 to 80, as they hike more than 50 miles following a pronghorn migration path across the high desert. The Greater Hart-Sheldon Region on the Oregon-Nevada border is a wildlife stronghold in the sagebrush sea, and these women hope to keep it that way.
Defined by the Line | Josh Ewing began visiting the Bears Ears region of southeastern Utah to climb at Indian Creek and explore the local archaeology. But when he moved to the town of Bluff, he saw degradation from oil drilling, looting, and careless visitors. Ewing knew simply loving a place was no longer enough.
