The Breckenridge Environmental Department invites you to the Wild and Scenic Film Festival at the Riverwalk Center.
Join the High Country Conservation Center and Continental Divide Land Trust for the Wild and Scenic Film Festival on Wednesday, January 8th at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge. Considered one of the nation’s premier environmental and adventure festivals, the films address environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet.
The festival features a variety of short films, including two anchor films. Set in South Africa, Second Nature: The Biomimicry Evolution follows Time magazine “Hero of the Environment” Janine Benyus as she illustrates how organisms in nature can teach us to be more sustainable engineers, chemists, architects, and business leaders. In Streams of Consequence, photographer James ‘Q’ Martin and conservation biologist Chris Kassar join the fight to protect the wild lands of Patagonia from proposed dams that threaten two of the most pristine rivers in one of the world’s most spectacular regions.
