The amazing history of #climbing in Yosemite coming to the big screen!
 
If you were amazed by Yosemite Valley climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson's quest to be the first to free climb Dawn Wall, you'll be stunned by the history and counterculture that went before them in this special presentation of the highly-anticipated, feature-length film VALLEY UPRISING.

The best film you will ever see about a stick insect.
 
Watch online now! The beautiful, wonderful, animated film 'Sticky', winner of the Best Short Award at the 2014 Festival.

Exiled from the tropical paradise where they evolved, a tiny population of remarkable stick insects dodged extinction by hiding under a single windswept bush on the world's tallest sea stack for 80 years. Thanks to a dedicated team of scientists they're now living safely in captivity, but when can they go home?

I loved The Great Flood - one to watch over and over.
 
There's still time to ask Santa for this terrific box set of collected works by filmmaker & multimedia artist Bill Morrison.

Morrison's work is characterized by his sensitive approach to found, often decaying film footage, and his close collaboration with contemporary composers, including Vijay Iyer, Johann Johannsson and Bill Frisell. Audiences from this year's festival will recall our premiere screening of 'The Great Flood', inspired by the catastrophic Mississippi River Flood of 1927 and the ensuing transformation of American society.

"The only major directors with a comparably original ear are probably Jean-Luc Godard and Peter Greenaway." —LA Times

“A TERRIFIC ACHIEVEMENT!” —LA Times on THE GREAT FLOOD

“ASTONISHING!” —Sight & Sound on THE MINERS’ HYMNS

“The most widely acclaimed American avant-garde film ofthe Fin de siècle.” —J. Hoberman, The Village Voice on DECASIA
