What: Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival on Tour

When: 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 (doors open at 6:30 p.m.)

Where: Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St.

Tickets: $10 each, available online and at the door

Inspirational films that share stories about the environment and community participation will be featured at the fifth annual Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival on Tour, which visits Davis on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Doors at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High School, 315 W. 14th St., open at 6:30 p.m. with the films beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are on sale online at http://2011daviswildandscenicfilmfestival.eventbrite.com. Tickets also will be available at the door.

This year’s event will include a silent auction and raffle.

Organizers are striving for a “zero waste” event, so attendees are asked to bring their own drink cups, snack bowls and cloth napkins.

The festival — hosted by Tuleyome, the Sierra Club Yolano Group and the Cool Davis Foundation — brings together award-winning environmental films in a spirit of inspiration and education. This year’s feature films include:

* “Spoil”: The story of Canada’s coastal First Nations’ fight against a proposed oil export pipeline from the Alberta tar sands across British Columbia to the coast. The International League of Conservation Photographers travels through the Great Bear Rainforest in support of First Nations and captures the iconic beauty and wildlife of this pristine landscape.

* “Slow the Flow”: Meet a landscaper who shocks his neighbors by putting in native landscaping and a nonprofit that puts gardens in the city. The projects are low-tech and inexpensive and make a good argument for kicking back and not mowing the lawns.

* “The Greatest Migration”: Follow the 900-mile journey of the Snake River salmon as they climb almost 7,000 feet from the Pacific Ocean to the Rocky Mountains to reach their final spawning grounds. These iconic fish travel farther and higher than any other salmon on earth, but dams block their migration and are pushing them to extinction.

* “Ride a Wave,” which tells the story of one man’s dream to give special needs youth the thrill of catching a wave. The story is as much about the kids who have the priceless experience of a day surfing at the beach as it is about the volunteers who make it possible.

The feature films are interspersed with poignant and funny short films about a variety of timely issues
