Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area announces the premiere of its new park movie Generations on Saturday August 27, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. (ET) at Bandy Creek Visitor Center. The film, which lasts approximately 15 minutes, will be shown every half-hour, with live musical interludes by Standing Stone. This new park movie was more than a year in the making, with footage shot across all four seasons and featuring many of the park’s most prominent outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, hunting, horseback riding, whitewater paddling, camping, fishing and rock climbing.
The movie was filmed by Silver Fir Media, who won first place for a media award in 2014 from the National Association of Interpretation in the short video category for their film, The Obed: Find Yourself Here. To capture the heart of the Big South Fork and its spectacular scenery, film crews braved snow storms, Class IV rapids, remote deeply wooded areas and steep cliffs.
“This film will give visitors a glimpse of the park like it’s never been seen before,” said Superintendent Niki Nicholas. “The result is an unconventional, artistic, and breathtakingly intimate look into the heart of a park whose beauty is inseparably linked to its remoteness and cultural history.”
Visitors are encouraged to join park staff as they roll out the red carpet for an evening of live music, popcorn and refreshments and the unveiling of a truly unique short film. This is a free event and reservations are not required.
Bandy Creek Visitor Center is located at:
