I hope you can join us for one of my favorite events that Rocky Mountain Wild puts on each year, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival!

This event features award-winning environmental and outdoor adventure films from around the world that we personally selected, not just for their great visual stories, but also because they inspire and motivate us to continue the cause to keep the Rocky Mountains wild.

As an activist and artist, I love this event. What’s not to love? The documentaries tell beautiful, visual stories that illustrate (one film will do so literally) challenges our planet is facing as well as work that individuals, organizations, and Indigenous communities are doing to protect the environment. These films light a spark in me, and I hope they light a spark in you too!

Our films will start promptly at 7 pm, but before that, we would like to invite you to our opening reception, starting at 6 pm. During the reception (and intermission), you can take part in direct actions from local nonprofits in our Citizens Action Hub in the lobby! 

When: January 23, 2020, 7 pm, with opening reception starting at 6 pm
Where: Mayan Theatre, 110 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203
Tickets:Tickets are only $12 plus applicable fees!

Share the Facebook event and/or poster with your friends who might be interested!

Direct Action sin the Citizens Action Hub

A few years ago, Rocky Mountain Wild sought to up the ante and include actual activism in the evening’s events! So, we created the Citizen’s Action Hub – an area of the theatre where local environmental non-profits had timely direct actions for festival attendees to take on the spot!

The Citizen’s Action Hub will start at 6 pm during the reception and continue until film time at 7 pm, as well as during intermission, so there will be time to take part in all direct actions should you wish to. We’re still collecting actions, but confirmed actions include: a petition to support wildlife crossing structures and various volunteer sign ups for citizen science projects! Stay tuned for more action announcements!
