Come join us to open the 2024 Meadowlark Nature Festival with community and conservation as we screen local and BC films to celebrate the beauty of nature and those that steward the land. Doors will open at 6:00pm for dinner (available from the Dream Café’s delicious seasonal menu), with welcomes and film presentations beginning at 7:30pm.

We are excited to open our 2024 festival with our first movie night at the Dream Cafe, screening the awarding winning work of BC filmmakers including:

Bringing the Salmon Home

The mighty Columbia River was once the source of the world’s greatest salmon runs. But massive dams have blocked salmon from returning to the vast headwaters of the upper Columbia River in Canada for 85 years. Bringing the Salmon Home tells the story of the Syilx Okanagan, Secwépemc, and Ktunaxa Nations who uphold their sacred responsibility to reintroduce the salmon. Today the three Nations are leading a collaborative process with BC and Canada, and working with US Tribes and allies along the river, to bring the salmon home for the benefit of all. In this half-hour film, first person stories combine with vivid landscape and underwater footage, and archival film, to tell the long-hidden story of these Salmon People. Produced by The Columbia River Salmon Reintroduction Initiative, 2022.

Keepers of the Land

In the heart of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest, one Nation is reclaiming the power they held for millennia. As the impacts of colonial exploitation and mismanagement take an increasing toll on their territory, the Kitasoo Xai’xais Nation finds strength in its stories and culture, emerging as a stewardship leader in a new age of reconciliation in Canada. A powerful story of resurgence, the weight of hereditary leadership, and the responsibility they carry into the modern world told through the eyes of elder and hereditary chief Nismuutk, Ernest Mason Jr., and the new young leaders following in his footsteps. Produced by the Kitasoo Xai’xais Stewardship Authority and Moonfish Media, 2023.

Wings of Hope: A Bustling Village and Their Bird Friends

Menar, a small village near Udaipur in Rajasthan, despite not being a reserved bird area has become a safe haven for thousands of resident and migratory birds. It highlights the extraordinary efforts of the locals (called Menarias) to make these birds feel secure in their bustling village. Produced by Gunjan Menon And Roundglass Sustain, 2021.
