Considered one of the nation’s premier environmental and adventure film festivals, these films combine beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for us all. Come for the films only or enhance your experience with a $10 membership donation and receive a Kanteen Pint Glass. Visit the Walton Theatre to see what a dozen of our non-profit partners are doing to shape the culture of Whatcom County.

Delight in this eclectic and masterful performance.
