If you’ve been living under a rock and have wondered what all the KEEP JUMBO WILD bumper stickers are about… or if you’re a longtime Jumbo supporter, then you wont want to miss JUMBO WILD.
Local director Nick Waggoner and Sweetgrass Productions are famous for creating ski movies with depth. And now they’ve put their creative efforts into this gripping doc that recounts the decades-long battle over the future of British Columbia’s iconic Jumbo Valley – hIghlighting the tension between the protection of wilderness and the backcountry experience and ever-increasing development interests in wild places. Set against a backdrop of incredible backcountry ski and snowboard footage, Jumbo Wild documents all sides of a divisive issue bringing the passionate local fight to protect the Jumbo Valley to life for the first time.
As Sweetgrass says: “this film exposes the constant battle to preserve our environment. It shows how we value the land and why we care deeply for our “wild gardens”.

Four friends, 13 wild mustangs, and an epic 3,000-mile journey through the most pristine backcountry of the American West, to raise awareness of the wild mustangs on BLM lands in the USA. They rode an almost contiguous stretch of unspoiled public lands, border to border, from Mexico to Canada…landing east of Creston.
A few years back FLIKS contributed to their kickstarter campaign to help make this journey and film a reality. Good on ya for accomplishing your dream!
(now that these screenings are over, we’d like to thank you the audience for coming out to see UNbranded. Nice to see fellow horsey-people at FLiKS)

Sundance Award winner, and important indisputable proof of climate change and its effect on our planet!
Acclaimed photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.
Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet.
“The most important film of the year.” Chris Columbus, Director and Producer
“This is the climate change film we’ve been waiting for.” Caroline Libresco, Sundance Senior Programmer
“If there was ever a film that needed to be on the big screen, this is it!” David Courier, Sundance Senior Programmer
