Epicocity’s Flathead Wild At Mountainfilm

© Garth Lenz, iLCP

We’re excited to announce that our film, Flathead Wild, will be showing at Mountainfilm this year!

If you’ve ever set foot in the Flathead River Valley, you can feel confident in saying it is one of the world’s most beautiful wild places. With miles of pristine, free-flowing river, abundant wildlife and rugged peaks as far as the eye can see, this contiguous block of wilderness is impressive to say the least.

Proposed mountaintop removal mining in southeastern British Columbia, Canada threatened the headwaters of one of the Flathead. But earlier this year, the British Columbia government announced a ban on oil and gas development in the Flathead River Basin. The next step: establish a new National Park and a Wildlife Management Area for the valley, ensuring that it has the same level of protection as its neighbor to the south, Waterton-Glacier International Park.

From Mountainfilm:

In Flathead Wild, we see how photographers from the International League of Conservation Photographers (iLCP) capture the beauty of this wilderness treasure as a step toward protecting it. Says one of the iLCP team, “If people see these images, they’re going to want to do the right thing.”
