'The Thousand Year Journey'

The Thousand Year Journey screened at the 2016 Les Bois Film Festival.

The inaugural Les Bois Film Festival last year had a sold out crowd, screening films from Idaho’s top outdoor filmmakers. Co-hosted by Wild Lens and Land Trust of the Treasure Valley, the festival is back in 2017 and much expanded.

"Last year, there was just one showing," said Land Trust spokesperson Julia Rundberg. "Now, we're making it a full-day festival."

The festival kicks off Saturday, March 4, with a free premiere of Wild Lens’ new documentary, Souls of the Vermilion Sea, an expose of efforts to save a Mexican porpoise from extinction.

Eight films make up the afternoon program, including short films The High Divide and Santiaguito: The Volcano Laboratory; as well as the award-winning feature film about trekking the Appalachian Trail, Paul’s Boots. Evening screenings will feature 11 films, including short films Chasing Ridgelines, The Falconer and Outdoor Idaho: Beyond the White Clouds. Elk River, an award-winning film about a migrating herd of Yellowstone elk, will also be screened that evening.

The festival will take place at the Egyptian Theatre beginning at 11 a.m. Tickets for the 2 p.m. screening are $5 for youth under 17, and $13 for adults. Tickets for the 7 p.m. screening are $10 for youths, and $18 for adults. There is also a $25 Adult Pass available that includes access to both the afternoon and evening screenings.
