RDRWA Source Waters Film Virtual Premiere on World Water Day
March 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Join the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance on Monday, March 22nd (World Water Day) at 1 pm for the virtual premiere of our new short film Source Waters: The Rivers That Shape Us.
Filmed in 2020, Source Waters provides essential context for those wanting to learn more about the landscapes, communities, and waters of the Red Deer River watershed in central Alberta. Starting in the mountainous headwaters of the Red Deer River watershed in Banff National Park, and travelling eastwards to the Village of Empress, just shy of the Saskatchewan border, the documentary takes viewers on a west to east journey across the watershed. Along the way, the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance talked to scientists, elected officials, ranchers and agricultural producers about the big picture of the watershed.
Register now to join the RDRWA and partners for the virtual film premiere, followed by a moderated discussion with panelists from across sectors. To view it on YouTube go to : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1O1FgzN3YEE&t=2s

We will be sharing behind the scenes footage, a blog, and more in the weeks to come. The film will launch on social media platforms after the event. #SourceWaters
