I’ve decided to hold off screening the full-length 1/2 hour film, On BEAUTY, As We Come To It In The FOREST, until officially launching it at Kootenay Gallery in Castlegar during my exhibition there this summer, August 7 – September 7. I’m planning an event there, likely the evening of Thursday August 8th (date to be confirmed) when both film and new book (Volume II SYLVAN REFLECTIONS) will be launched. (I reserve the right to change my mind again about a possible advance screening this, lol!)

But! Isaac (filmmaker) has made a 4 minute trailer for it —a gorgeous little film in its own right, and . . . drumroll please . . . this has been accepted into the North Valley Mountain Film Festival, this Saturday, March 2nd, 6:30pm in Silverton at the Memorial Hall. If you are local come on out to take this in, it will be a wonderful evening of many excellent films. Hope to see you there!

Here’s what they say about the festival:

“Inspired by our mountain culture here in the North Slocan, a handful of local adventurers and wilderness lovers have been organizing the North Valley Mountain Film Festival since 2007. It is now an annual event thanks to community interest and support, and a committed group of volunteers. We are happy to bring you another fantastic evening of films and photography for our 18th mountain film festival.

This festival is inspired by what drew, and keeps, many of us here – the lake, mountains, wilderness, adventure, and simple healthy living. We seek to showcase a mix of professional and home-grown productions to bring awe, laughter, intrigue, and discussion to the community. We feature shows from local to regional, and sometimes from a little farther afield. Thanks to all the local folks for their submissions. 
We look forward to seeing you there!” 


If you are not in the area though, and/or are unable to come out to the festival I still would love you to see this gorgeous little trailer, to whet your appetite for the full-length film coming this summer, so . . . I have uploaded it to my YouTube channel with a private link just for you!
