2022 Environmental Films
One of the most popular films on the 2022 roster is called The Last Last Hike. In this film, 83-year-old Nimblewill Nomad is about to become the oldest person to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. This epic journey takes him all the way from Flagg Mountain in Alabama, the true southern terminus of the Appalachian Mountain Range, to mountains of northern Maine. Nimblewill has been the caretaker for the past 3 years of Flagg Mountain, and throughout his odyssey he shares his beautiful experiences with the cameraman. "With more than two decades and 50,000 miles of hiking experience behind him, will this really be his last last hike?"
Another favorite is the Down The River Collection. In this series the people of Gardiner, Maine work to provide fish passage around three historic dams on Cobbossee Stream for the first time in over 200 years. Their goal is simple—they wish to restore an ecosystem that can support millions of river herring and other wildlife. This series includes five films: Voices for the Little Fish, Ocean to Idaho, A River Reborn, La Riviere, Learning to Live with the Rare Ones Among Us. The Collection is directed by Jerry Monkman and the cast includes Tina Wood, Steve Brooke, Nate Gray, Landis Hudson, and Sharon Gallant.
