Washington Water Trust hosts the Seattle premiere of the 12th annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival at the SIFF Cinema Uptown on April 24th.
Prepare to be amazed, motivated, inspired and wowed by a number of carefully-selected films, including The Strong People, a powerful documentary telling the story of the Elwha Dam Removal, and Momenta, which describes the impact of the planned coal export trains through the Pacific Northwest. Other films will give festival viewers a view into real life adventures in the natural world—hiking with daring kayakers into a remote Mexican jungle in search of the perfect waterfall from which to plummet; reveling in the adventure of catching air; discovering what motivated a man nicknamed SLOMO to live by inline skate; and floating the Trinity River of California with a five year-old boy in search of his first steelhead trout. More about the Featured Films including links to trailers here.
Come experience the Wild and Scenic!
