Flathead Wild a Finalist in the 2009 Wild & Scenic Film Festival
This summer, we were invited by the International League of Conservation Photographers to take part in a R.A.V.E. project the Flathead River Valley in Southwestern British Columbia. The goal of these Rapid Assessment Visual Expeditions is to capture compelling media to support an existing conservation effort. Here, in one of the most pristine river valleys on the planet, a proposed open pit coal mine would disrupt a critical habitat migration corridor and pollute the headwaters of Glacier National Park in the US.

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival is the largest environmental film festival in the nation. The 2010 festival is January 15th-17th in Nevada City, CA.
