The 2nd Annual
Wild & Scenic Film Festival – Redding Tour

LOCATION: YOUR HOUSE!

NOW EXTENDED THROUGH SATURDAY!
AUGUST 29TH AT MIDNIGHT

We would have loved to have seen you in-person, but the COVID-19 pandemic has moved us to offer this important film festival as a virtual-live streamed event that also includes additional access to the films for 5 days afterwards!

SECOND ANNUAL
The 2nd annual Virtual Wild and Scenic Film Festival – Redding Tour is a natural extension of the Whole Earth and Watershed Festival and Shasta Living Street’s work to inspire people to act on behalf of the environment ~ both locally and globally.

14 INSPIRING SHORT FILMS – WHERE ACTIVISM COMES ALIVE
This year’s Film Festival will feature 14 inspiring films, ranging from 1 minute to 20 minutes. The line-up includes Hat Creek: A Wild Trout Legacy, a film highlighting the restoration of the trout fishery in Hat Creek. You will also enjoy music from our local record company, Miracle Mile Records, during the program!

We hope that this year’s film selections will ignite your activism and create new partnerships for the work that lies ahead!

The home festival kicks-off the international tour to communities around the globe – including Redding.

Want a new lawn sign for calm neighborhood streets?

We’re making new lawn signs.  Our signs will be designed and printed locally.  This is one simple way to help support our community in this extraordinary time.

Designs underway.  We will have a few for you to choose from. With colorful, friendly graphics.  Not too big, so they withstand the wind.  Messages like these:

Please Drive Slowly, Children at Play
Please Drive Slowly, Children – Adults – Grandparents at Play!
20 is Plenty

Walking, biking, and rolling – for everyone now, getting out in our neighborhoods is more important than ever.  People need to get out daily, ride and take walks solo and with  their families.  Kids at home need to get outside.  You may have noticed more people walking, biking, skating, rolling.

We are all distracted and it’s good to remember to take care when driving through neighborhoods.  These signs will give a reminder to everyone to check your driving speed around homes and yards.

Are you interested in a lawn sign for your yard?
Please let us know your preference

530.355.2230
Or contact Anne at athomas@shastalivingstreets.org

We’ve made a number of signs over the years . . . maybe you remember a few of these

MarchFourth is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires the audience in an atmosphere of celebration and joy. This show is a big band experience not to be missed!

“Part New Orleans brass ensemble, part groove-heavy rock group, and part vaudevillian circus, this group unleashes a technicolor experience. – 5280 Magazine

MarchFourth is a 5-piece percussion corps and 6-part brass section plus funky electric bass will take you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, echoing the deepest grooves of American funk, rock, and jazz then boiling it all together in cinematic fashion with high-stepping stilt-acrobatics and dazzling dancers.

What began as a Fat Tuesday party in Portland, OR on March 4th 2003 appeals to audiences of all ages and musical tastes, and has become one of the nation’s best live touring acts.

ABOUT CALIFORNIA STREET LABS

California Street Labs is a project of Shasta Living Streets.  This project supports our community by making the restored downtown warehouse available to community groups as a place for people to come together to test ideas and actions that build a vibrant downtown and a great city, as our community addresses questions of the 21st century.  The activities and prototypes, shows and entertainment are designed by individuals and groups throughout our region to help people connect, contribute, address challenges and have fun together.

The project began as a one-year pop-up on October 6, 2018.  Nearly 100 artists and groups participated throughout the first year to help restore the space and create popular experiences and activities.   In 2020 the project will continue, with the restored warehouse opened as a public venue once a week, primarily on Saturdays, with one large event per month.  Hours vary.

What we Hope to Achieve at California Street Labs
– Increase activities in downtown
– Create experiences for people to enjoy
– Help connect the many people working to improve our city
– Provide a space to prototype ideas for downtown
– Build resources while major projects are underway
