A Survey of Open Space
This full-blown adventure documentary focuses on a pair of city folk who begin a search for a truly wild place in America from the seat of a bike. Their journey begins on the Mexican border and spans the entire continent until they reach their conclusion in the Arctic. The film not only boasts stunning cinematography but also digs deep into the idea that our wilderness areas are disappearing as the Western expansion continues unabated. Join these adventurers on their journey across 4,000 miles of some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. This film is part of the COTA Movie Night which raises money for the Central Oregon Trail Alliance.

International Fly Fishing Film Festival
Now, do not mistake the International Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4) for the 2015 Fly Fishing Film Tour that played at the Tower Theatre last month. The massive Central Oregon fly fishing community should be overjoyed that two separate film festivals have both come to the Tower over that last month, sharing feature length and short films, all about their favorite pastime. The IF4 will have films like Liquid Gold (about Golden Trout), Bermuda Love Triangle (the triangle between Miami, Bermuda and the Dominican Republic), Distracted (fishing for Cutthroat Trout), and Secrets (hidden fishing spots). The success of the two film festivals is only testimony to the expanding popularity of the sport—and, a reminder what a remarkable spot that boasts both still water lakes, and cold rushing rivers.
