Come early, grab a beer and stop by Friends of Scotchman Peaks Wilderness table to catch up on our efforts to get Wilderness designation for the Scotchman Peaks.

Join us for one of America’s premier outdoor adventure documentary film festivals.  A celebration of the environment and the human spirit, this film festival is dedicated to educating and inspiring audiences about issues that matter, cultures worth exploring, environments worth preserving and conversations worth sustaining.  Each year, a selection of films from this international film festival are taken on the road to reach audiences who otherwise wouldn’t have a chance to experience the festival.  Those films display themes of adventure, mountaineering, remarkable personalities and environmental issues.

MickDuff’s will be selling beer. General admission for each event is $13, student admission for each event is $11.  A raffle drawing will be held at intermission during each event.  Advance tickets are available at MickDuff’s, Eichardts and the Outdoor Experience. .  Tickets will also be sold at the door on the day of the event.
