Fan Favorites” film lineup includes:

Bears of Durango (59 min) was a real crowd pleaser and one of the most talked about films at the 2020 Festival. Dive headfirst into bear dens with biologists who have spent 6 years investigating why there have been increases in human-black bear conflicts.

This year’s People’s Choice Award Winner was The Sacramento, At Current Speed (38 min). The Sacramento River is a workhorse, hemmed in by freeways, channelized for agriculture and drinking. But there is also a hidden river, where you can launch a boat and float 300 miles to the sea. We are excited to welcome both Mitch Dion (Writer/Narrator/Interviewer/Boatman) and Tom Bartels (Co-Producer, Camera, Editor) as special guests.

2020 Student Filmmaker Award winner A Walk Through the Land Of 1,000 Hills(11 min) joins Rwanda National Park Ranger Claver Ntoyinkima as he guides you through one of the most biodiverse places in the world.
