The Eleventh Annual Shasta Mountain Film Festival was held at the College of the Siskiyou’s Ford Theater in Weed. Award winning films from the Wild and Scenic Film Festival were shown, hosted by Mount Shasta Bioregional Ecology Center. The Film Festival is sponsored by Way to Go Media.

Films like “The Wolf and the Medallion,” “Second Nature: The Biomimicry Evolution,”?were shown.
Four films shown, dealt with issues concerning our World and how we should try to save our planet. These four films won The Earth Island Institute’s Brower Youth Award in the year 2011.
The evening also featured a raffle with prizes donated from national sponsors and local businesses.

An interesting offer was there, where whoever filled their name and email on the back of the ticket had a chance to win a Mount Shasta Lily Pendant donated by Jon Thomas Jewelry. This aroused interest among the women folk.

Apart from films, several artists like Francis Mangels, Bobbi Coulter and Beverly Jean Harlan played music 5.30 to 6 in the evening. The music set a perfect ambience for the evening ahead. Films began at 6 pm.

Tickets were sold at $15 per person and $10 for students and seniors.

Way to Go Media, a new film development company, is committed to making independent films with metaphysical themes. The stories according to them should be powerful and illuminating. This initiative will bring out further talents.

The Company’s first film, “Dreams Awake,” a supernatural family drama set at Mt. Shasta, was released last year. It was highly praised.

This Film Festival held in 9th March not only illuminated the minds of the young film makers but also enhanced their minds. With meaningful films being presented, they are definitely going to create an impact upon the minds of the students and elders alike.
