I’m excited to update you on the journey of KILLING GAMES ~ Wildlife In The Crosshairs as it makes its way along the film festival circuit—and to ask for your support to help us show and distribute this film across North America.
As many of you know, I recently attended the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival in Jackson, Wyoming, and was thrilled to learn that KILLING GAMES was selected for the Jackson Hole WILD On Tour circuit. We’re excited to announce that the film is now an official selection of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, which takes place in Nevada City, California, from January 11-15, 2018. This will be our global premiere! In addition to its inclusion as part of the main program, KILLING GAMES has been invited to join Wild & Scenic On Tour—this is particularly significant, as it means the film will show around the world, with 165 events scheduled so far, and will reach over 40,000 people. Furthermore, Dan Flores, Project Coyote Ambassador and author of New York Times best-seller Coyote America ~ A Natural and Supernatural History, will join me in Nevada City to do a joint program as part of the main festival.
The inclusion of KILLING GAMES in both the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival’s and Wild & Scenic Film Festival’s On Tour programs will provide a tremendous boost to our campaign to raise public awareness of the barbaric practice of wildlife killing contests, which are permitted and sanctioned by our state wildlife agencies throughout the United States. But we need your help to ensure the film’s widespread success! Film screenings, film festival submissions, and film distribution require funding and resources.
KILLING GAMES was made possible by supporters like you and through the efforts of talented and dedicated individuals. Buttressed by historical accounts and compelling remarks from prominent wildlife scientists, Native American tribal leaders, ranchers, wildlife conservationists and others, our film tells the important story of wildlife killing contests. Friends from the arts helped us set the film’s spoken story against a backdrop of sublime natural scenery, and created an original musical score that carries the story along. You can see the trailer and film web page here. You can also view the film’s 60-second trailer on YouTube here.
Going forward, we plan to show the film at key film festivals and to the general public with theater screenings in states across America. We will also screen the film at wildlife events co-sponsored with partnering organizations to garner greater exposure and to galvanize a grassroots movement to end this cruel bloodsport.
Please help us achieve this goal. Our supporters are integral to our efforts to educate the public and effect positive change on behalf of North America’s native carnivores.
For the Wild,
Camilla H. Fox
Founder & Executive Director
