We’re just back from the Sedona International Film Festival and the Geography of Hope Film Festival. All screenings were sold out and we got a great response from the audiences. Both festivals wrap this weekend, so if you’re any where near Sedona, AZ or Point Reyes, CA , I hope you have a chance to go. Great festivals, good people and gorgeous scenery.
And lastly, here’s an interview done during the Mill Valley Film Festival with yours truly:
We’ve got several great screenings of “The River Why” coming up.
The Sedona Film Festival (http://www.sedonafilmfestival.com/) is screening “The River Why” on February 20 at 8 pm and on February 22 at 9:10 pm. We are really looking forward to this festival in such a gorgeous setting.
On February 24, “The River Why” is screening at the “Festival of the Fly” in Hood River, Oregon. (http://www.skylighttheater.com/web/movies/nowshowing.cfm). A significant portion of the money raised by this event will go to stream restoration in honor of Glen Haack on both the big White and the Hood River … Friends of the White Salmon.Org.
As many of you know, I’m a big believer in “Active Cinema” and look forward to future screenings that will raise the profile of issues around river and fish conservation. We’ll have more news about that and our summer limited theatrical release in the weeks ahead. Thanks to “Festival of the Fly” for sharing our goals. I’m always open to other great ideas on how we can share information about these important issues, so please get in touch with me if you have any thoughts or new social media ideas. I’d like to make it a win/win for both the film and the non-profits with which we’re working.
On February 25, at 7 pm in Point Reyes, CA, “The River Why” is the opening night film for the first ever “Geography of Hope Film Festival”.
