Spokane Riverkeeper is hosting the Wild and Scenic Film Festival for the third year on Thursday, May 4 at the Garland Theater thanks in large part to sponsors Mountain Gear and Patagonia. The film festival includes 90 minutes of films ranging from 4-25 minutes each. Film themes include environmental stewardship, adventure, and portraits of innovative outdoor people. Many of the films focus on rivers, a highly relevant topic to the Spokane region. One of the films, “Elwha Undammed – What a River is For?” reveals the cultural and environmental impacts of the dam’s removal through personal experiences of people who are closely connected to the Elwha. Proceeds from the event will support the Spokane Riverkeeper and its mission of protecting the health of the Spokane River. Doors open at 6 p.m. with refreshments provided by River City Brewing, crafter of the Riverkeeper IPA, the sales of which benefit the Spokane Riverkeeper. There will also be a raffle and door prizes. This is a kid-friendly event, and families are encouraged to attend. The films run from 7-9:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 online at Eventbrite.com or $15 at the door. //
