As you begin preparing for your next run on the Gallatin’s Mad Mile or fishing adventure on the Blackfoot, whet your appetite beforehand with eight movies showing at the Wild Rivers Film Tour. The tour kicks off on April 6 at the Lone Peak Brewery in Big Sky.
Now in its second year, 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 will host the Wild Rivers Film Tour in Big Sky on April 6, Bozeman (student showing) on April 10, Billings on April 11, Missoula on April 26, Whitefish on May 18, Bozeman (public showing) on May 31, and Livingston on June 1.
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, Monture Creek, Danaher Creek, the Gallatin, Madison, Dearborn, Smith and Yellowstone rivers.
