‘Wild and Scenic Film Festival’
CALLICOON, NY — Catskill Mountainkeeper is hosting the “Wild and Scenic Film Festival,” a national touring program showcasing the best in environmental and natural films. Catskill Mountainkeeper has curated three days of special screenings that celebrate the natural world and speak powerfully to challenges facing the Catskills, tackling issues like the integrity of our rivers and drinking water safety; the health of our food and farms; and climate change impacts and solutions.
In addition to three days of films, the festival features activities like outdoor yoga, a foraging workshop, a photography class and an art show; roundtable discussions with experts; a Q&A with director Jon Bowermaster, whose film “Seeds of Change” will be shown Saturday night; and a Saturday night after-party with live entertainment at the historic Western Hotel, where a portion of the bar proceeds will also benefit Mountainkeeper.
The festival will be held from June 14 to 16 at the Callicoon Theater. All access festival passes cost $115. Tickets for individual screenings cost $14, weekend film passes cost $50 and tickets for the Friday night benefit dinner and screening cost $75. The dinner starts at 6:30 p.m. followed by a screening of “A Vetter World” at 8:30. All proceeds will support Mountainkeeper’s work in protecting the environment and building a more sustainable future.
Catskill Mountainkeeper is a non-profit with a mission to “protect our region’s wild lands and natural resources, support smart development to sustainably grow our economy, nurture healthy communities, and accelerate the transition to a 100% clean energy future in New York and beyond.”
