In remembrance: Rebecca Tarbotton

January 3, 2013

We were so shocked and saddened to hear of the passing last week of Rebecca Tarbotton, Executive Director of the Rainforest Action Network.  Becky was an incredible force – she was passionate and articulate and wise and funny.  She was a direly needed visionary, and she leaves a hole in the world.  Our deepest sympathies go out to her family and her community at the Rainforest Action Network.  You can read more about Becky and contribute to RAN in her honor here, and read the obituary in the NY Times here.  Becky attended the 2011 Wild & Scenic Film Festival and you can watch an interview with her from our media lounge here.

Becky was to join us this year on our Awards Jury, and we will have a tribute to her at our Festival Headquarters and at our Awards Ceremony on Sunday.
