Kettle Range Conservation Group will present its 8th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival, March 25th. The Festival will be Live Streamed this year to avoid spreading Covid 19. To get tickets visit www.kettlerange.org . The virtual theatre window will open at 6 PM with background music and scenery. The program will begin promptly at 6:30 PM followed by a 10 minute intermission at one hour and a final set of 5 films to end the show.
“There are some significant advantages to live streaming the festival this year such as the simplicity of watching at home with family & friends and the added benefit of being able to watch the program again and again for up to 5 days following the actual event,” said Timothy Coleman, executive director of Kettle Range Conservation Group. “Ticket sales and a silent auction help cover some of the costs of putting on this festival.”
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is sponsored by the Vinson Fund, 49 Degrees Mountain Resort, and Vaagen Bros. Lumber Company and with support from Avista, Kettle Falls Generating Station.
This annual event is a First Class film festival of award-winning films covering a broad range of adventure, science and environmental issues that will fascinate, inspire and amuse audiences of all ages. International and U.S. film productions feature stunning scenery, unique wildlife photography, athleticism and social activism.
This year’s festival features 10 films including two feature-length films about the magical Pacific’s Kuril Islands and the incredible adventures of polar explorer Myrtle Simpson. These are films for all ages. There will be a short tribute at intermission to Dick Slagle who died recently at 101 years of age.
