2010 Wild & Scenic Film Festival – Update

The 2010 Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival ‘On Tour’ made its only Iowa tour stop, and hosts JAX Mercantile did a fabulous job of executing another outstanding event.  The collection of short films was inspiring, the “Enviro-Fair” preceding the event brought over 15 participating companies and environmental organizations, and the well-attended event was great fun overall!  The event is a fundraiser for the Squaw Creek Watershed Coalition.

Here are a few highlight images from the evening.  A full set of photos can be found over on my flickr site.  If you are an event attendee and would like to purchase a print, but didn’t receive a passcode to the proofing gallery on my main website – please email me for access!

Thanks to everyone at JAX for hosting the event again this year, and for including Mark S. Peterson Photography!  For complete information on the Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival, see this link!

Wild & Scenic Environment Film Festival ~ Saturday April 24 ~ Green Up and join us!

In honor of Earth Day, Jax Mercantile will host the 2010 Wild & Scenic Environmental Film Festival “On Tour” for its only Iowa tour appearance – this Saturday, April 24, 6:00-10:00pm in the Memorial Union Sun Room, on the Iowa State University Campus, Ames, Iowa.  The Festival is co-sponsored by several environmentally-oriented local organizations, including yours truly – Mark S. Peterson Photography – and supported nationally by Patagonia, Clif Bar, Tom’s of Maine, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., and Osprey Packs. 

I’ll be exhibiting about a dozen nature photographs throughout the festival, and will be working the event as staff photographer. An “Enviro Fair” featuring exhibits by local environmental groups and green-minded corporations, will kick things off at 6:00pm, followed by a selection of the films featured in the  9th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival that took place Jan 14-16 in Nevada City, CA.  The films are fabulously produced, entertaining and interesting, and will inspire you to act for the environment!  

A silent auction will be held through the evening, and will include one of my original photographs. 

All proceeds from the evening go to support the Squaw Creek Watershed Coalition.  And, I’ll be donating all profits from event print sales, after expenses, to the organization as well.

So Green Up and come out for a fun evening!  But wait – you’re not near Ames?  The Festival Tour may be coming near you – check it out!

Above are a few photos of the 2009 event!  I’ll post 2010 images shortly after Saturday’s Festival!
