“The Coalition for Sonoran Desert Protection is proud to once again be hosting The Wild and Scenic Film Festival! This event is a collection of films from the annual festival held each January in Nevada City, CA. Wild & Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet.

This event will inspire the people of Tucson to go out and make a positive difference in our community. This year, films include “Our Canyon Lands” (about protecting the areas surrounding Canyonlands National Park), “Sagebrush Sisters” (follows three women along a pronghorn migration route by the Oregon/Nevada Border), “In Current” (explores rowing dories down the Colorado River), and many more including the Coalition’s own short film about protecting wildlife linkages in the Sonoran Desert.

We will have music, local conservation organizations tabling, and a fabulous raffle with unique items from local sponsors. We hope you can join us for this memorable and inspiring event! Visitwww.sonorandesert.org for more information. (Dir. by Various, 2016, Approximately 115 mins., Not Rated)”

One response to “Wild and Scenic Film Festival coming to the Loft Cinema

  1. “Where activism gets inspired” does indeed describe these 10 films shown tonight at this film festival, where all people involved had a passion for preserving and enjoying the wilderness of the world. Several of the films were close to home about Canyon Lands in Utah, the wildlife linkages here in the Sonoran desert, and Bears Ears in Southeastern Utah. The last 2 films were about men who built the dories (small boats) that raft the Grand Canyon, in memory of Martin Litton who fought not to build a dam in that canyon.
