2022 WSFF Film Line Up
Finding Salmon - Follow 11-year-old, Keyona, into a wondrous world of trees, water, and friendly fish... and find the spirit of Salmon Watch, a program that connects Oregon youth to their backyard river ecosystems. A film by Freshwater Illustrated.
Rooted In Culture: Oregon's Wild Camas - Oregon’s beauty is not just rooted in its incredible landscape, it is the roots themselves that hold treasures.
My Last Day of Summer - A young rider finds adventure in animation.
SHABA - After losing her mother to poachers, an unruly elephant named Shaba is rescued to the mountains of northern Kenya to be rehabilitated back to the wild. The women keepers of Reteti Sanctuary have a maternal solution to soften Shaba's heart.
Vala North - In the far northern atolls of Papua New Guinea, scientist chieftain and visionary John Aini resurrects old secret ways and melds them with what he and his fellow chieftains and their people know of the coral reefs they rely on. Vala North is a story of a thin thread of hope in a changing world, hope for coral reefs around these islands, and hope for the communities that rely on them.
True Wild - Val Asher is one of the world’s most knowledgeable biologists on wolf behavior. Having spent more than 20 years working with wolves – and more than 10 on Ted Turner’s Flying D ranch in Montana – her wisdom and insights are invaluable in demystifying one of North America’s most elusive animals.
Maneuvers- "Maneuvers (Manöver)" is an experimental animation combining skiing with stop-motion animation
Rainforest Action - The New Environmentalists share a common goal – safeguarding the Earth’s natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for justice in their communities.
TranSending - This film follows the journey of Erin Parisi as she comes into her own identity as a Transgender woman and trains for the Seven Summits to create awareness and visibility for the Trans community. TranSending showcases this journey of extensive vulnerability, heartbreak, and courage.
The Church Forests of Ethiopia - Over the past century, farming and the needs of a growing population have replaced nearly all of Ethiopia’s old-growth forests with agricultural fields. This film tells the story of the country’s Church Forests–pockets of lush biodiversity that are protected by hundreds of churches “scattered like emerald pearls across the brown sea of farm fields.”
Guardians of the River - Klamath River Indigenous leaders and youth fight to free their river from life-killing dams, restoring salmon, economy, and culture.
Can't Beat This Place for Fun - Flagstaff's Fretwater Boatworks defines the process, and deep conservation legacy, of building Grand Canyon dory's - with fun at every bend.
One Star Reviews: National Parks - They say National Parks are America's greatest idea. Some of the most beautiful and sacred places in all the world. Well, for some people... there's still room for improvement!
