Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival – Feb. 10

Join the River Alliance of Wisconsin when they host the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival On Tour on Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Majestic Theatre, 115 King St., Madison. The event will include a post-screening reception catered by the Roman Candle, a prize raffle featuring Patagonia gear and a special appearance by Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton. Tickets are $10 for the screening and $25 for the screening and reception. As a special bonus, all $25 ticket buyers automatically become members of the River Alliance of Wisconsin.

Wild & Scenic On Tour brings together a selection of films from the annual Wild & Scenic festival in Nevada City, Calif. The event will feature four films from the 2009 Festival; the delightful short Goldfish; The Water Front, a short documentary about one Michigan town’s fight against privatization of their water supply; Homegrown Revolution, the story of a Pasadena family who, over 20 years, have transformed their city home into an urban homestead that produces almost 3 tons of organic food; and the feature film, Red Gold, which details the fight between native fisherman of the Kvichak and Nushagak Rivers in Alaska and the mining company that wants to extract what could be the richest gold and copper deposit in the world from the rivers’ headwaters.

Tickets will be available at both Madison-area Fontana Sports stores and the River Alliance office beginning January 15th and at the Majestic Theatre box office on the night of the event, and online through Brown Paper Tickets. For more information, call 608-257-2424 x116.
