Inspiration Abounds at the Wild and Scenic Film Festival

January 17, 2013

The 11th Annual Wild and Scenic Film Festival took place January 10-13 in Nevada City, California. The theme for this year’s festival was “A Climate for Change,” with a focus on working together to combat climate change and inspire hope for a better future.

Goldman Prize Interim Executive Director Lorrae Rominger joined John Antonelli from Mill Valley Film Group for screenings of several film segments from The New Environmentalists, featuring the 2012 Goldman Prize winners. Featured films can be viewed by clicking the titles below:

A Voice for the Voiceless, featuring Father Edwin Gariguez

The Arctic Garden, featuring Caroline Cannon

Home to Turkana, featuring Ikal Angelei

The Mothers of Ituzaingo, featuring Sofia Gatica

The New Russia, featuring Evgenia Chirikova

And Troubled Waters, featuring 2011 Prize recipient Francisco Pineda.

The team at Mill Valley Film Group is challenged every year to tell the complex and heroic stories of the Goldman Prize winners in just three short minutes, and every year they do an amazing job.

We know that storytelling through film is one of the most powerful ways to inspire and educate viewers, and we are so pleased to work with such a great team of filmmakers to spread awareness of the Goldman Prize recipients and their work.
