New York WILD Film Festival Friday

6:00pm - 7:00pm - Check in and Reception

7:00pm - 9:00pm - Introduction by Pete McBride

  Nature is Speaking: The Soil - Finalist
Conservation International, 3m
“Nature Is Speaking: The Soil," narrated by Edward Norton delivers a message people everywhere need to hear: Nature doesn't need people, but people desperately need nature.

  Icefall - Finalist
Joseph Areddy, Switzerland, 4m - NY Premier
In four minutes, this film brings the viewer into a visually powerful experience of watching climbers ascending frozen waterfalls which were lit up and glowing at night – an extraordinary collaboration between filmmakers and athletes making for a rare adventure shot in the barren beauty of Norway’s Icefalls.

  How to Catch a Tiger - Finalist
Michael Booth, Brant Backlund, USA, 12m - US Premier
With time running out, two filmmakers scramble to learn how to use an ultra-high-speed camera, and get to Far East Russia in time to catch a rare Siberian tiger the moment it's released back into the wild.

  DamNation - Best Environmental Film
Ben Knight, Travis Rummel, Matt Steocker, USA, 52m
This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.
