River Restoration Northwest (RRNW) is excited to announce that we will be hosting our 8th annual ‘Stories of Our Watersheds” film event.

Selected films will be shown virtually this year, with the potential for the films to be shown on the big screen at theaters in:

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.
