Film still from Gregg Treinish, A MoveShake Story

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is proud to showcase a plethora of inspirational films. One of the 2014 favorites is Gregg Treinish, A MoveShake Story. This film tells the story of a young man who combined his passion for adventure, his deep interest and education in wildlife biology, and courage to found Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation. A year of unpaid work and complete dedication was followed by a wave of support that is continuing to grow.

Alexandria Bombach, Producer of Gregg Treinish, A MoveShake Story, was inspired to create the MoveShake series when her first film, 23 Feet, received enormously positive feedback from people wanting to shed their belongings and live more simply after seeing the film. “I was amazed at how the power of film can shift perspectives and change lives,” Alexandria says. 23 Feet captures people doing what they love outside. As a filmmaker, Alexandria is passionate about telling stories of people not only doing what they love, but doing what they believe in.

Alexandria Bombach, Film Producer and Director

Bombach met Gregg Treinish at the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in 2012 when another film in her MoveShake series was screening and shares that they’ve since developed a wonderful friendship. Her film, Gregg Treinish, A MoveShake Story, has been one of the most popular 2014 films in Wild & Scenic On Tour this year. Alexandria Bombach has recently won an Emmy Award for this film from the San Francisco Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences! Congratulations Alexandria!

With the MoveShake series complete, Alexandria’s 2015 Wild & Scenic submission is Common Ground, an 18-minute film about ranchers in Montana fighting for land conservation in the Rocky Mountain Front. Bombach explains, “I like telling stories of unlikely characters, people who challenge perspectives. I like hearing about conservation from a group of people you wouldn’t expect, like ranchers, who believe in conservation like we do. It’s a lot about heritage… saving a place that they love. It’s a good conversation to have.” Learn more at www.commongrounddoc.com

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival is not only excited about the film Gregg Treinish, A MoveShake Story and Alexandria Bombach’s success; we are also celebrating the continued work of Gregg and his team. Since Treinish founded Adventures and Scientists for Conservation (ASC) in 2011, the organization has sent upwards of 1,200 athletes to collect data for more than 120 scientists. These partnerships have led to the discovery of more than a dozen new species, provided key information to guide climate change decisions, and helped protect threatened wildlife habitat.

Merrill Warren, Executive Assistant at ASC describes, “ASC has a diverse menu of projects mobilizing adventure athletes to provide the scientific community with hard-to-obtain data, while giving the outdoor community purpose beyond the personal high of reaching a summit or rowing across an ocean.”

One of ASC’s largest current initiatives includes partnering with the American Prairie Reserve on a landmark multi-year project to collect wildlife data year-round which directly informs range management. Since February, ASC has been maintaining six adventurers at a time on the prairie, which will one day become the largest protected wildlife reserve in the continental United States.

Another of ASC’s significant projects is a global initiative to collect water samples for research on microplastic pollution in the ocean. Microplastics are microscopic bits of debris that are found in face washes, cosmetics, slough off our fleeces when we wash them in washing machines, and make their way into our oceans where they then move up the food chain. In addition to causing great harm to marine life, this means that they become part of our diet. We can help reduce problems from microplastics by wearing natural fibers, not wash fleeces in washing machines, avoiding plastic bags, and avoiding cosmetics with microbeads.

ASC is mobilizing sea-goers to collect water samples worldwide and working with a partner scientist to analyze the 1-liter samples. Merrill Warren explains, “We have Adventurers who have touched every ocean. Anyone with a love of the outdoors can contribute, from beachgoers to sailors who are circumnavigating the globe,” and adds, “The results are staggering. Nearly every sample has come back with plastics, including one with 299 pieces in one liter. With the data collected, we hope to leverage lawmakers to restrict the ways plastics are used.”

Gregg Treinish is currently in Botswana on the first live data expedition in the Okavango Delta, scouting for a potential ASC project there.

Gasland II Screening August 22

August 14, 2014

2014 Best of Festival Agaslandward Winning film returns to Grass Valley

In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar®-nominated film GASLAND, filmmaker Josh Fox takes a broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global level.  GASLAND II shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film argues that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas, methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in Fox’s words “contaminating our democracy.”

When: Friday, August 22, 2014 at 7:00 p.m.

Tickets Available Now for DamNation

July 10, 2014

Elwha“There are so many reasons to see this film. Come for the visually stunning footage. Come to celebrate a new era for our dam-obsessed nation – a fresh chapter of dam removal and river revival. Come for the hope generated by seeing un-dammed rivers heal and salmon populations return. Come to see the spirited 94-year old Katie Lee recollect Glen Canyon before it was submerged. Come to be inspired by former Earth First graffiti activist Mikal Jakubal. Or just come for the explosions. In any case, do not miss the film that river lovers across the nation are talking about,” recommends Elizabeth Soderstrom, Senior Director of Conservation for American Rivers.

poster_sm_webThe South Yuba River Citizens League’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival and American Rivers bring you a screening of the film DamNation followed by a Q&A with one of the filmmakers, Matt Stoecker and a discussion on Yuba salmon as part of the Nevada Theater film series on July 20, 2014. Funds raised benefit American Rivers & SYRCL’s Yuba Salmon Now Campaign.

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.

DamNation opens big, on a birth, with the stirring words of Franklin D. Roosevelt at the dedication of Hoover Dam, and on a death, as the engineer at Elwha Dam powers down the turbine on its last day. DamNation stints neither the history nor the science of dams, and above all conveys experiences known so far to only a few, including the awe of watching a 30-pound salmon hurtling 20 feet into the air in a vain attempt to reach the spawning grounds that lie barricaded upriver. We witness the seismic power of a dam breaking apart and, once the river breaks free, the elation in watching wild salmon – after a century of denied access – swimming their way home.

“This film is an opportunity for fans of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival and river lovers to gather and support river and salmon issues in our own backyard, as it’s a benefit for SYRCL and American River’s Yuba Salmon Now campaign,” said Melinda Booth, Festival Director.  “Phenomenal filmmakers Ben Knight, Travis Rummel, and Matt Stoecker, along with Producers Yvon Chouinard and Beda Calhoun have made a documentary film on rivers and dams that rivals a Hollywood blockbuster in terms of engaging the audience and telling a compelling story.  It is definitely a “don’t miss” for river and film lovers.”
