Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

FILMS TO CHANGE YOUR WORLD!

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival comes to Carlisle

Carlisle, PA: Join Dickinson College in the presentation of the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, on tour at Althouse room #106. February 25 and 26, 7-9 PM. All proceeds benefit the Localmotive Bike Tour three women cycling across the United States from Virginia to Oregon this summer. Their mission is to inspire girls while connecting them with local foods sources.

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival, now in its 9th year, is one of the largest environmental film festivals in North America. Showcasing a collection of films from the annual festival in Nevada City, CA, Wild and Scenic focuses on films that speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet.

Join skier Jordan Manley as he visits the iconic Canadian Rockies, climbing and skiing for 6 days out of his picturesque base camp. Tag along with seven longtime friends to explore the white water rivers of Southern Africa. Along their adventure the team works closely with the Sun Catchers Project, bringing solar cooking ovens and water purification into schools, orphanages and communities. And if you’re a sucker for the animal kingdom, follow notable anthropologist Jane Goodall as she examines the power of photography and its value as an effective conservation tool. These films and others will take the stage, and Dickinson students and community members will also have the floor to discuss local environmental issues.

And don’t miss the raffle! Prizes include goodies from our sponsors: Osprey Packs, Patagonia, Clif Bar, Grist, The Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, and Klean Kanteen.
