Wild and Scenic Film Festival banner

SCRA is proud to host the 2018 Wild & Scenic Film Festival, a selection of award-winning films from the nation’s largest environmental film festival.

Enjoy fabulous film making, gorgeous cinematography, and inspirational storytelling during an evening of films about nature, adventure, wildlife, rivers, and communities.

Join us on Monday, November 12th for an evening of adventure, inspiration, and humor.

Time: 7 – 10 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)
Where: Dual Citizen Brewing, 725 Raymond Ave, St Paul, MN 55114 (Parking)
Cost: $8 in advance, $10 at the door

Advance purchase strongly recommended, remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

Dual Citizen Brewing is “a community-focused brewhouse” inspired by the Twin Cities, and a belief that St. Paul and Minneapolis are both better because they share a border.

“I believe the Mississippi River deserves credit for this,” says brewery taproom manager Jane. “It’s our backbone and continues to provide us with evolving industries, recreation and natural resources. Rivers can act as borders and barriers but that’s not the case here.”

Film previews:

Here are a few of the selections that will be shown!

Every Bend

Three Montanans talk about how clean, free-flowing, wild rivers enrich their lives. We focus on the power of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and how it has benefited just a few Montana rivers, and relatively few nationwide. In doing so, we are reminded of what is at stake if we don’t protect more of our cherished rivers.

“National Parks are hard.”

Where the Wild Things Play

Friday night at the local watering hole and … where the ladies at? Answer: BASE jumping from high desert cliffs, performing tricks on slacklines, climbing granite routes, shredding singletrack, skiing backcountry lines and generally leaving you fellas behind. This rowdy ode to female athletes by Krystle Wright leaves no doubt about the state of women in today’s outdoor world: badass.

Chasing Wild: Journey Into the Sacred Headwaters

Three friends set off on a 400km bike packing and packraft expedition through the heart of the sacred headwaters in northwestern British Columbia, birthplace of three critical salmon rivers, and home to the Tahltan people. In the wake of the devastating Mount Polley Mine disaster, the team’s goal is to understand what is at stake as a wave of new mines are developed across this remote corner of the province. Their journey offers an exciting and sobering window into this wild landscape as they pedal through vast boreal forest, paddle frigid whitewater, battle monster trout, outrun a grizzly, learn about the Tahltan’s fight to protect their homeland, and glimpse inside a massive open pit mine.
