Durango Animas River Days movies announced

Animas River Days kicks off with party celebrating the first ever local adventure media contest, combined with the 6th Annual Reel Paddling Film Festival at the Smiley Building Theater, on Friday June 10, 2011 at 6:30 pm. (doors open at 6:00 pm) Yummy food and drink available from Zia and Ska!

Locally produced films include a Bumpin and Grindin, a parody about inner tubing on Vallecito Creek, First Descents- a celebration of Cancer Camps for kayakers, Pandora- a film about top secret Durango area kayaking venues, BUG- about local slalom racing star Zach Lokken, Durango Steeps- local kayaking, and Dive- local paddlers on a Scuba Dive trip in Indonesia.

From the Internationally renowned REEL Fest, the Durango audience can expect to see these great films:

The Book of Legends – which won BEST ADVENTURE PADDLING FILM
In 1975, Russian explorer Igor Bazilevski and his team of 10 men attempted the first descent of the Bashkaus River in Siberia. Tragically, Bazilevski and half of his team drowned. In 2010, an international team of whitewater kayakers travelled to Siberia in search of Bazilevski’s illusive goal.

Three of the world’s best kayakers take a journey to the Scandinavian paddling Meccas of Iceland and Norway. While they search inside the Arctic Circle for rapids and waterfalls that have never been run, they’re also searching for the elusive moments when the stars align and everything goes perfectly. But sometimes, in the blink of an eye…things go horribly wrong. Director: Steve Fisher

Better Than You Imagined
Five 2 Nine Productions and Bottoms Up Kayaking assault the senses with an onslaught of kayak porn from around the world. This no nonsense film takes you from Ecuador to New Zealand, from Quebec to Thailand. Also featured are some of the world’s most notable paddlers.

Seasons: Fall
Deep canyons with steep, spring-fed creeks make White Salmon, Washington, a paddling paradise. This features a true whitewater chic, White Salmon local Kate Wagner, who lets viewers know why she loves kayaking so much.

Ode to the Club Boater
Our screener reports this is “full of beatdowns, funny and short”. This short spoof of pro boaters emphasizes that “No club boaters were (intentionally) harmed during the making of this film.”

Small Hydropower
This short sarcastic film explains all about the many benefits (sarcasm) of Small Hydro Power, and the amazingly green (sarcasm) technology built into these run-of-river hydro projects. Don’t let those anti-dam liberals and fishermen give hydropower a bad rap.

Awakening the Skeena, wherein Ali Howard swims the 610-kilometer Skeena taking a stand for her river and its future

The Reel Paddling Film Festival World Tour is produced by Rapid Media and presented in Durangoby San Juan Citizens Alliance on Friday June 10th.
Tickets are available at Four Corners Riversports, and at Marias Bookshop.
