Join Eagle River Watershed Council for our 6th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival presented by Avon Frame Shoppe!

This year’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival will be fully virtual using a platform called Quidio.  The live-hosted film program features a silent auction, door prizes, and an interactive chat to bring the true event feel right to your TV or computer! There are a variety of ticket options to fit any budget and a donation portal during the event should you want to contribute more! Plus, we have collaborated with local Land & Rivers Fund restaurants to offer food specials directly through our ticketing platform – including an option to rent the Riverwalk Theatre for you & your friends. See more information below on these food specials or click here to purchase tickets. Can’t join us on the day of the event? You can still access a recording of the program for 5 days after the event to watch when it is convenient for you!

‘Doors’ open at 6:30p | Films begin at 7p

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival acts as a fundraiser for our educational programming, supporting Watershed Immersions, the Eagle River Water Festival and more – all while highlighting issues and inspiring environmentalism. Films are hand-selected & family-friendly, covering a variety of film topics. From local interest and “feel-good” films to films with a “call-to-action” and some that just make us feel connected as a global community.

 

Silent Auction

Our silent auction features incredible local experiences, overnight adventures and beautiful goods – all donated by local businesses! Some of the items include: A weekend van rental from Dave & Matt Vans, 3 night stay in a San Juan cabin, Turtle Tubing experience for 3, guided fly fishing trips & more.

Check out the items & bid here!

We are using the 32 Auctions platform for this virtual fundraiser which is easy-to-use right on your favorite internet browser . Bidding goes live on April 1st and will close at intermission on April 8th.
