Milwaukie’s 2017 Watershed Event

The Milwaukie Film Series returns for our 6th year with the 2017 Watershed Event and in celebration we’re going fishing! And we hope you’ll come along!!

We’ll screen the NW premier of ‘Finding Fontinalis’, by Travis Lowe . The film documents the journey of fishermen who are inspired by an old gaucho’s tale to search for a new world-record brook trout; but the water, landscape and the culture surrounding them became the impetus to conserve and protect it all. The old gaucho gets two thumbs up and so does ‘Finding Fontinalis’.

In addition, we’ll screen ‘The Rapid Decline of the Lower Deschutes River’ by Steven Hawley. A short documentary about how this world class river has become a tragedy for fish and fishermen alike.

And we have a great raffle of rods, reels, and outdoor gear. You must be present to win!

The event will be held Saturday April 22nd at the J.C. Lillie Center for the Arts located on the campus of Milwaukie High School and near the Milwaukie Light Rail Station.

The show starts at 7pm, doors open at 6:30pm, and tickets are $8 online /$10 at the door.

Under 17 FREE w/paid adult!
