Hopefully you had the chance to see the engaging, eye-opening, yet entertaining documentary DamNation when it screened at SIFF. If not, don’t fret. You’ll have two chances to see the film in the near future. On June 5, the film will be screening in Patagonia stores across the country, including 7p showings at the Seattle and Portland stores. And, beginning on June 6, the film will be available for rent and purchase on Vimeo On Demand.

DamNation - Trailer from Patagonia on Vimeo.

You (and a friend!) could also win a trip to the Olympic Peninsula to attend a screening of DamnNation, raft the newly freed Elwha River, and spend the weekend with Matt Stoecker, co-producer of DamNation and underwater cinematographer and Dylan Tomine, an author who is featured in the film! Post a photo on FB, Twitter, or Instagram of a deadbeat dam or your favorite river in your area and include #thatdamcontest and @patagonia. The DamNation film crew and the Patagonia photo department will pick the coolest/most creative image. Enter soon, the contest ends on June 7th, 2014!

Regardless of how and where you see this film, be sure to check out the DamNation website to discover a variety of opportunities to get involved with dam-removal efforts.

And for anyone wanting to learn more about the Elwha Dam removal process and the people closest to the effort, be sure to watch the KCTS 9/EarthFix documentary UNDAMMING THE ELWHA. This special presentation from KCTS 9’s own Katie Campbell follows the journey of the Elwha River, from the day it was dammed to the day it was set free once again. A film not to be missed by anyone interested in river restoration.
