Cape Cod National Seashore to Host Winter INTO THE WILD Film Festival - Exploring How People Interact with Landscapes and Nature Both Real and Imagined
Contact: Brent Ellis, Park Ranger, 508-255-3421
Cape Cod National Seashore will kick off its annual winter film festival on Sunday, January 19 with the blockbuster film, Dances with Wolves. Each winter a different theme or genre is explored, and this year’s focus is how people interact with landscapes and nature - both real and imagined. Films will show on six consecutive Sundays at 1:30 PM on the theatre-size screen at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Refreshments will be provided 30 minutes prior to each film. The movies are free, thanks to generous funding from Friends of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

In the mid-19th century, Henry David Thoreau walked the Atlantic coastline of Cape Cod, recording his adventures in his narrative "Cape Cod". To literally follow in Thoreau’s footsteps today would require scuba gear. Cape Cod’s Outer Beach sees an average erosion rate of close to 4 feet per year.
