Jeremy of Freshwaters Illustrated provided the MS NANFA Convention attendees a screening of Hidden Rivers!

 

It was shown in the theater of the museum after Kay & Martin's excellent Catfish Cookout, there on the museum grounds amongst the dinosaurs.

We had to clear out fast after the credits and had no time to discuss the film.

 

Jeremy asked me to ask NANFA members and viewers to visit the hiddenrivers.org site.

There you can get details about future screenings ( a Fall & Winter schedule is being developed ), sign up for notifications, purchase David Herasimtschuk prints and /or donate to the project.

Knoxville Optimist Club.

About 60 folks attended including JR and Peggy Shute, Liz and Dr. Etnier, Little Eddie, new NANFA member Bradley Pruitt and former member Rob Mc.

I presented a 20 minute talk before the film screening and raised about $500. for Freshwaters Illustrated.

Hi,

 

I am just now learning of this.  Does anyone know if this film has been released to the public?  Can I in NYC watch it?  I'm going to look online.  Thanks.

Cesar...

This Fall and Winter the film will do screenings in the Southeast, along with film festivals nationwide.  If i get a schedule i should post it here.

BTW... I mailed your NANFA logo shirt yesterday.

Thank you for supporting NANFA.  I'm wearing mine today.  :)

Hi Casper!

 

Thanks for the info.  I am really wanting to go see this film.  I help run a flora and fauna of Long Island class and can't wait to wear it for one of the days we go fishing.  I've got a plant, bug and salamander shirt, so I am more than happy to add to the collection.

I enjoyed my 6th viewing of Hidden Rivers last week at Guntersville SP in Bama.  It just keeps getting better.  Years ago I had attended a Southeastern Fishes Council meeting there and had forgotten how beautiful the State Park is perched high overlooking the lake.

This occasion was the annual TRBN ( Tennessee River Basin Network ) meeting.  I had the honor of being nominated and awarded $5000. and will be applying it toward a special project.

The "project" is nearing the final stages and i am most appreciative of NANFA's support.

 

But more news...

Jeremy has provided, at no cost to NANFA, a screening of Hidden Rivers at the upcoming South Carolina NANFA Convention, just as he did for NANFans way down yonder in Mississippi.

I guess i've seen it 6 times now and it just keeps getting better.

:)

 

More news...

David Herasimtschuk, photographer and videographer for Hidden Rivers is featured in the brand new October issue of National Geographic, something he has aspired to since being a young boy!

Jeremy will soon be providing a list of screenings for November, surely in a town near you.  Tomorrow Hidden Rivers is showing in Young Harris... do you know where that is?  If you are an active NANFA member you do.

Hidden Rivers was a finalist at the Jackson Wild film festival along with Freshwaters Illustrated March of the Newts ! ( However, the film was beaten out by the sound of wild snails eating :)

The guys at Freshwaters Illustrated flew me out to Oregon for their hometown screening of Hidden Rivers.  It was my 7th time to view it and it just keeps getting better.  The film played at Corvallis's Whiteside theater, saved by its citizens and now screens art, cult and in this case one of their own's home town boys film project.  400 folks showed up and what an enthusiastic crowd they were!

 

Hidden Rivers will play at about a dozen locations this November.  Go to Freshwaters Illustrated and perhaps find a screening near you.

I spent 10 days in Oregon, what a wonderful adventure it was, every day.  We went to Neptune, The Pacific Ocean, all kinds of Eaterys, Cider Houses and Farmer's Markets.  Hunted mushrooms i was to nervous to eat and bought many varieties to cook.  I even snorkeled a river and don't recall if i have ever been so cold.  40s Jeremy said.  I lasted about an hour but my fingers became useless nubs.  Jeremy had to peel off my wetsuit, rub me briskly with a dry towel and put my socks and shoes on!  I was able to put my own britches on, fortunately for us both.

The balcony was near full too.  What a great crowd giving me a wonderful welcome.  I even drew winning a dozen winning numbers from the giveaway jar.

Jeremy getting ready for the presentations, speaking and film introduction.  Dave gave a 10 minute talk about his photography including the recent pages in the newest National Geographic.  They also showed March of the Newts from their Vimeo channel.  Check this short film out.  David took me to the coastal rain forest where parts were filmed and we watched my most western sunset.

5 mils is not enough i can truly testify.  I have now snorkeled in Oregon.  Check.  30 so more states to go.

I've lost track of how many times i've seen Hidden Rivers now.  Tomorrow Jeremy and / or i will present it at the SFC Holiday Inn near the Knoxville Sunsphere.  Then south to ATL for the Georgia Aquarium.  That will complete the November Tour.  The next tour will be after the holidays in March 2020.  If you think your community would enjoy it look over hiddenrivers.org and contact Jeremy.

Hidden Rivers was shown twice in my hometown of Chattanooga last Saturday at the VW facility.  About 20 environmental and nature groups displayed at the Noon til 8pm event.

A few nights ago we kicked off the Rome Film Festival with a screening.
