Celebrating How We Experience and Sustain our Watersheds Through Film

River Restoration Northwest (RRNW) is excited to announce that we will be hosting our fifth annual ‘Stories of Our Watersheds” film event on May 3rd, 2018. The initial film screening will be held in Portland, Oregon, and will feature a series of short films that celebrate the different ways we experience, sustain, and celebrate our river systems.

RRNW is seeking films that are entertaining, educational, and inspirational. Films should not be commercial in nature. Submitted films should acknowledge the many disciplines, perspectives of the river or watershed restoration industry, watershed stakeholders, and river users. This year we are encouraging films that focus on the theme of Changing Course: The challenges we face, and the measures we take, to adapt to the critical changes looming in our climate, political, and social systems.

Run times of 10 minutes or less per film is preferred, with a maximum length of 20 minutes.
The film submission deadline is organized into three tiers:
Early Bird Deadline ($12): January 26, 2018
Regular Deadline ($16): February 16th, 2018
Late Deadline ($20): February 23rd, 2018
