This week marks your last chance to watch a collection of intrepid and touching river films all under one roof. The 2017 Wild Rivers Film Tour wraps up this week in Bozeman on Wednesday May 31 at the Eagles Ballroom and in Livingston on Thursday June 1 at the Shane Lalani Center for the Arts. 
 
The Wild Rivers Film Tour celebrates our love for clean water and free-flowing streams. Films show the stories of a wide variety of people who love rivers, from a New Mexico Native American, to a former U.S. president, to Montana river guides.
 
American Rivers and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition  co-host the Wild Rivers Film Tour.
 
Awarded the 2016 Banff Mountain Film Festival Special Jury Mention, The Super Salmon portrays the story of one fish's determination to reach the origin of the Susitna River in Alaska. Known as the Everest of rivers, the Susitna is threatened by a mega-dam proposal, and locals have organized to stop the project. The Wild Rivers Film Tour will also play the world premiere of The Shape of a River, which shows the Yellowstone River as a benefactor to those who choose to live on its banks. The film is the product of a joint effort between two Bozeman-based non-profit organizations – Ocean Media Institute (OMI) and the Montana Aquatic Resource Services (MARS).  Additional short films highlight a kayak school on the Gallatin River, a hiking guide on Montana’s Wild & Scenic designated Middle Fork of the Flathead River, the river legacy left by former President Jimmy Carter, perspectives from Native Americans, and the value in keeping more of America’s rivers wild.
 
Proceeds from the Wild Rivers Film Tour will benefit Montanans for Healthy Rivers – a coalition of businesses, sportsmen and conservation groups working together to designate new Wild & Scenic Rivers in Montana. Montanans for Healthy Rivers has galvanized support for Wild & Scenic River protections for dozens of Montana’s most cherished streams in the Greater Yellowstone and Crown of the Continent ecosystems. Notable rivers include sections of East Rosebud Creek, the Boulder, Gallatin, Madison, Dearborn, Smith and Yellowstone rivers.
