Bears of Durango (59 min) was a real crowd pleaser and one of the most talked-about films at the 2020 Festival. Dive headfirst into bear dens with biologists who have spent 6 years investigating why there have been increases in human-black bear conflicts. We look forward to welcoming special guest Dusty Hulet (Director/Producer) who will provide us with some deeper insights into the making of the film.
This year’s People’s Choice Award Winner was The Sacramento, At Current Speed (38 min). The Sacramento River is a workhorse, hemmed in by freeways, channelized for agriculture and drinking. But there is also a hidden river, where you can launch a boat and float 300 miles to the sea. We are excited to welcome Jeff White, CEO of the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, as a special guest. Additionally, we will have both Mitch Dion (Writer/Narrator/Interviewer/Boatman) and Tom Bartels (Co-Producer, Camera, Editor) as special guests, who will be sticking around after the films to answer your questions.
2020 Student Filmmaker Award winner A Walk Through the Land Of 1,000 Hills (11 min) joins Rwanda National Park Ranger Claver Ntoyinkima as he guides you through one of the most biodiverse places in the world.
