For five consecutive Friday evenings this spring, you will have the opportunity to see some of the best wildlife and ecological films in the world. Films featured in the series are award-winning films from the International Wildlife Film Festival in Missoula, Montana. Hundreds of filmmakers enter their work in this prestigious film festival and we have selected some of the best films to show right here in Ukiah. The series will run on February 24, March 3, 10, 17 and 24, 2017. Doors will open at 6:15 at our very own Ukiah Civic Center.
Series tickets for the entire five nights will be available at the Mendocino Book Company for a $45 donation to the RVOEP. Individual tickets are available at the door for a suggested donation of $10. The Mendocino Book Co. is located at 102 S School St. in Ukiah, phone (707) 468-5940.
These extraordinary films are truly a celebration of our earth and its great diversity. Please join us in supporting the RVOEP and enjoying a wonderful community event. Each evening will begin with live music provided by outstanding local musicians. Watch the newspaper for further details or check this website often. Get your tickets early. Last year many of the films were sold out.
To get to Ukiah Civic Center, take Perkins St. west to North State Street. Turn left, and then right on Seminary Avenue. Proceed to the Civic Center parking lot.
