Come and be inspired at The Wild and Scenic Film Festival, returning to Damariscotta in February! Join us for the 2018 Wild & Scenic Film Festival “On Tour” at Lincoln Theater in Damariscotta on February 26, from 7 to 9:00 PM.
Wild & Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. “Films featured at Wild & Scenic give people a sense of place,” says Tour Associate Director, Amelia Workman. “In today’s busy world, it is easy to disconnect from our role in the global ecosystem. When we realize that the change we need in this world begins with us, we start making a difference.”

KEEPERS OF THE FUTURE (23 minutes): In a fertile floodplain, where the great river meets the sea, a peasant movement puts down roots – growing resilience in the scorched earth of exile and war. But soon these farmers and fishers discover new, global challenges: climate crisis, exacerbated by an economy of ruinous extraction. The solutions they come up with will be a revelation for audiences in the prosperous north. On the surface, the life of these campesinos may resemble the past, but in their model may lie the key to the future.
SHIFT (29 minutes): A group of indigenous youth spent 10 years converting traditional trails around Carcross, Yukon into a world-class mountain biking destination and have transformed the community – and themselves – along the way.
SKY MIGRATIONS (15 minutes): Each fall, our skies fill with the wings of migrating raptors, a migration that relies on two hemispheres worth of wild and healthy ecosystems. Join ecologist and filmmaker, Charles Post, as he shines a light on the network of back country scientists and sentinels at the front lines of raptor conservation.
