CalTrout is thrilled to announce that the film, Eternally Wild, produced in partnership with Keith Brauneis Productions, has been chosen as an official selection for the 14th annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival.
Eternally Wild is a film about the iconic Smith River, a salmon and steelhead stronghold, its history and its plight. The Smith is threatened by a proposed nickel mine that would sink 59 drill holes over 4000 acres on the pristine North Fork of the Smith River. This would pave the way for one of the largest nickel mines in the Western United States. The EPA (Environmental Protection Act) considers hard-rock mining one of the most toxic polluters in the U.S.
For over a quarter century, The Wild & Scenic Film Festival has been building a community to protect and restore the rivers of our home watershed, from source to sea. The Festival puts organization’s and individual’s work into the broader environmental and social context, and serves to remind us that we’re participants in a global movement for a more wild and scenic world. The Festival takes place January 15-19th in Nevada City, CA and will tour around the country from there. Don’t miss it!
