Save the date for an evening of short, entertaining films related to water. Each screening will open with a wine and cheese reception, followed by a series of short, entertaining films related to water. Tickets are only $10 for adults and $5 for children or students with a school ID.
A few highlights from the 2011 Riverkeeper Film Festival will include the award winning comedy about a woman’s strange dreams after gorging herself on clam pie, a documentary short that follows a family’s journey to the glacial apron of a mountain, and Rain Down From Above, a film by Russian animator Ivan Maximov. Festival-goers will also hear the story of a group of volunteers who risk their lives to disentangle humpback whales from marine debris. A short documentary film created by Exploris Middle School students will also be shown at the Raleigh screening of the Riverkeeper Film Festival. The film, Kids Can Conserve, is a clever, fun and upbeat take on how kids can make a positive impact on the environment.
