Washington Water Trust will bring the 2014 Seattle premiere of the Wild & Scenic Film Festival to the SIFF Cinema Uptown (511 Queen Anne Ave. N.) on April 24 beginning with a happy hour at 5 p.m.

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival, a collection of films from a festival held annually in Nevada City, Calif., focuses on films that speak to environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. Seattle’s premiere will feature eight films, including “The Strong People,” the story of the Elwha Dam removal and efforts by the Lower Elwha Klallam to restore the tribe’s sacred salmon stock; and “Momenta,” which describes the impact of the planned coal-export trains through the Pacific Northwest.

Each $15 festival ticket includes a beverage and a raffle ticket; tickets are available at the SIFF Cinema Uptown box office or at www.washingtonwatertrust.org.
