I attended the 3rd Annual (Gainesville FL hosted) Wild & Scenic Film Festival (WSFF).
It was hosted by The Florida Trail Association. Good people.
For this outdoor screening, we chose a unique program of environmental and adventure films that illustrate the Earth’s beauty. They also show the challenges facing our planet and the communities working to protect it.
It was clear to me too that diversity was important in the selection of the 14 films.
Hillary Van Dyke & Angie Riviere of Outdoor Afro were there, for example.
Hilarious stories of how African Americans are greeted on the trail. 😀
But we’ve not yet talked to anyone who’s hiked there. (Leave a comment below this post if you have more information on Kamchatka.)
In the meantime, check some photos from Dark Roast Blend:
Wilderness without bounds, in a typical Russian style.
There is a place in the world so remote and so wildly beautiful, that very few decide to go there and those who do, carry the enchantment for the rest of their lives. Land of towering volcanos and magnificient Pacific coastline, as boundless and pristine as the Canadian North, but far less known and definitely less travelled. Life is harsh there, and ghosts of communist past are never too far behind.
