The event will benefit the LTUA and GARNA and includes 20 environmental and adventure films with unique films shown each night. Both evenings promise an “incredible selection of films to change your world.” Considered one of the nation’s premiere environmental and adventure film festivals, this year’s films combine stellar film making, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling.

Films will be shown from 6:00 to 8:30 pm and drinks, pizza and popcorn will be available. The Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas and the Greater Arkansas River Nature Association will offer a joint membership in both organizations for the discounted price of $25.

Single event tickets are $12 before the festival and $15 at the door. Additionally, all individuals under 18 years old will receive a discounted ticket for only $5.
