Rogue Riverkeeper Hosts 6th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Ashland, OR –Rogue Riverkeeper hosts the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour in Ashland at the Historic Ashland Armory on Friday, November 9th. The Wild & Scenic Film Fest combines stellar filmmaking and first-rate storytelling with a selection of adventure and environmental films. This year’s film festival celebrates 50 years of the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act and our very own Rogue River by featuring films about wild places and the people inspired by them.

Each fall, this sold out event brings together a diverse community to celebrate the Rogue and Rogue Riverkeeper’s work to protect it. The curated selection of films informs, inspires, and ignites solutions to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour is a benefit for Rogue Riverkeeper, a non-profit organization that protects and restores clean water and fish in the waters of the Rogue.

This year’s Film Festival features keynote speaker Katherine Luscher, who not only brings more than two decades of experience protecting rivers, but who has also served as a whitewater rafting guide on the Rogue for 15 seasons.

“The Wild & Scenic Film Fest brings our community together to celebrate stories of people around the world finding solutions to protect and restore special places,” said Robyn Janssen of Rogue Riverkeeper. “It is a fun, inspirational event and gets bigger and better every year!”

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival includes a happy hour with food, drinks and silent auction from 5 - 6PM. Presentations and films begin at 6:15PM and run until 9:30PM.

Tickets can be purchased online or at The Ashland Outdoor Store at 37 N. 3rd St. Ashland. Advanced ticket purchases are $20 for regular admission, $15 for students, and $10 for kids 10 and under. A membership ticket package is available for $50 that includes admission, membership to Rogue Riverkeeper, a pint glass and drink ticket (a $75 value). This event sells out and prices will increase at the door.
