DC Environmental Film Fest: Where the Yellowstone Goes

Come check out the Washington, D.C. Premiere of the film Where the Yellowstone Goes during the DC Environmental Film Festival.

This is a 1 hr 28 min film that has you embark on a 30-day drift boat expedition down the longest free-flowing river in the continental United States. From the Gateway to Yellowstone National Park in Gardiner, Montana to the confluence of the Missouri River at historic Fort Buford, North Dakota, two boats drift north along the Yellowstone River. Led by a fly-fishing guide and fourth-generation Montanan, this inspirational journey takes place amongst the peaceful sounds of a massive water flow, flanked on each side by rugged mountains, plains full of big game and an unending sky showcasing bald eagles and osprey. Connect with colorful characters, get lost in the hypnotic cast of a fly rod and experience fireside stories on this river adventure. Intimate portraits of locals in both booming cities and dusty, dwindling towns along the Yellowstone River illustrate the history and controversies surrounding this enigmatic watershed, leading to questions about its future. Directed and produced by Hunter Weeks.
Introduced by Rebecca Wodder, Senior Advisor to the Secretary, U.S. Department of the Interior.

This event is FREE and no reservations are required, however, it is STRONGLY ADVISED to arrive at least an hour early (5:30) to ensure you get a seat. By RSVPing to this meetup event it does not ensure you will get in.

U.S. Department of the Interior, Yates Auditorium, 1849 C St., NW (Metro: Farragut West)

UPDATE: Since everyone will likely arrive at different times, just get there and get in line (if there is one). The doors will open at 530pm and we'll try to get seats together on the left side of the auditorium. I'll post the seat area once I get there and in. And for those of you that want to stick around after for some food and a drink we'll be heading to BlackFinn DC (1620 I St NW Washington, DC 20006)

They have a great late night menu: http://blackfinndc.com/menu/late-night/

    The meetup and the group were awesome and fun, dinner was deeeelish, but the film not outstanding but had some good points- kinda made me want to go fishing ;)

    I enjoyed the scenery and fishing, which is what I came for along with getting together with all my "buds", which is always such a blast! Blackfinn was a wonderful place as always and the company sublime! See everyone on Wednesday!

    The movie left a lot to be desired, it was more like a personal home movie of people on vacation than a documentary about the Yellowstone river.

    March 19, 2013

    • Michelle A.

      I agree John, was a little disappointed in that myself.

    I can't find my American flag. But I will bring a yellow bandana and hang it on the back of a seat so look for that.

      I'm here now! Auditorium is empty. I'm in gray pants and a blue top, with a gray coat on the back of my seat... center section, row K, left side.

  • Jim N.

    I have not been able to get out of work yet (in Baltimore), so will be late depending on traffic.

    March 18, 2013

    • Michelle A.

      Well save you a seat Jim! :) drive safe

      March 18, 2013

    • Jim N.

      In that case I will fight my way through traffic to get there Michelle...I-295 is a parking lot, so will have to take alternative routes.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone.

    can't make it anymore :( Enjoy the movie!

    For those interested, after the film we'll head to BlackFinn DC a few blocks away (1/2 mile) near the Farragut West Metro. They have a great late night menu: http://blackfinndc.com/menu/late-night/

    • Marie

      Sounds good. How will we meet up at the film (or did I miss that somewhere)?

      March 17, 2013

    • Michelle A.

      Good question Marie. Everyone will get there and get in line (if there is on). Since there are so many we can just try to get seats in the same area. I think well try to get the seats on the left side of the auditorium. Will post location when I get there.

      March 17, 2013

  • Michelle A.

    Thinking of a drink somewhere after the film. There isn't too many places nearby that are nice. There is the Exchange and Bottomline. If anyone has any suggestions please post here.

    • Henry

      or chinatown?

      March 15, 2013

    • Michelle A.

      Thanks for the suggestions. I think people will be more likely to stick around after if its walking distance from where we are. I just but in an email for us to go to BlackFinn DC and they have a great late night menu

      March 17, 2013

  • john b.
