Local filmmaker Ben Knight, co-owner of Felt Soul Media and producer of the wildly popular film, Denali, will attend the event and bring 120 Days, which has only screened once before. The film is about one of the best tarpon fly fishermen in the world, who catches the 150-pound saltwater beasts in Florida’s panhandle.

Knight’s 7-minute short, Kamchatka Steelhead Project, will also show Oct. 22. The film is about fishing on the remote Russian peninsula, where steelhead are protected as an endangered species.

This fundraising event is hosted by the Greater Arkansas River Nature Association and the Land Trust of the Upper Arkansas. Proceeds support conservation and youth environmental education through GARNA and LTUA, as well as the Tenderfoot Times newspaper at Salida High School. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and films start at 7 p.m.
