We’re looking for your most creative & inspiring 5-or-less minutes of footage to be judged by a panel of Gorge whitewater pioneers and athletes. The first, second and third place submissions in each category – Professional, Amateur and “Young Gun” – will be shown on May 6th at the Bingen School Inn in Bingen, Washington. Attendees of the film fest will also be voting and crowning a “Viewers Choice” winner in each category. $10 admission at the door includes film festival admission and will go directly to First Descents!

Food from Big Man’s Rotisserie will be available for $5 and another $5 will buy you a cup for your favorite beverage, courtesy of Everybody’s Brewing, pFriem Family Brewers & Humm Kombucha! All money from food and beverages will also be going to First Descents!

Film makers, grab your best footage, invite all of your buddies and let’s raise some money for a great cause!

2. On 5/1 at midnight (ok, actually probably the next morning when we wake up for you procrastinating night owls), we’ll send all of the links and passwords to our esteemed panel of judges. Our judges will watch all the videos and we’ll tally their votes to determine 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in each category.

3. The judges placed winners will be shown in no particular order the night of the film fest. The audience will then have their turn to vote on their favorite. 1st, 2nd, 3rd and “Viewers Choice” for each category will be announced at the end of the evening.
