The Wild & Scenic Film Festival October 22nd at the Lincoln Theatre
The Skagit Fisheries Enhancement Group (SFEG) is excited to bring the Wild & Scenic Film Festival back to the Historic Lincoln Theater for one night only on Saturday, October 22nd. This evening of short films will kick off with a reception starting at 6:30 pm in the Lincoln’s Art Bar with Seattle filmmaker, Kevin Campion. Mr. Campion’s film “The Unknown Sea: A Voyage on the Salish” is one of 12 films being featured as part of the Film Festival. Films will begin at 7:30 pm. The films were selected from the 100 films shown at the annual film festival held in California. The films capture the spirit of diverse conservation efforts across the globe and explore our deep, intertwining with the environment. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival partners with a coalition of nonprofit organizations to host ‘On Tour’ events to reach across different communities and bring together a diverse audience. SFEG is thrilled to be selected as a host organization for this amazing film event for the second year in a row and hopes the Film Festival will inspire a greater connection with our own Wild and Scenic Skagit River, as well as provide an evening of engaging fun.
