The Moondance International Film Festival, featuring its distinct cinematic visions and bold film selections, has distinguished itself around the world as much more than an annual film festival! The Moondance is a unique community, a supportive, productive, and creative year-round collaboration between independent filmmakers and movie audiences, between writers, music composers and the world of top-quality filmed entertainment.

THE MOONDANCE MISSION: 

Through top-quality indie films, writings and music, the Moondance International Film Festival promotes non-violent conflict resolution and inspires equality for women and girls, as well as encouraging awareness and action to resolve vital environmental issues and global humanitarian crises. We honor filmmakers, writers & composers who actively increase awareness, provide multiple viewpoints and address complex social issues.

MOONDANCE SUPPORTS & RECOMMENDS:

Last Chance to Protect Yellowstone’s Grizzlies!

GRIZ & CUB @ RIVER

Thanks to vigorous conservation efforts, grizzly bears are once again part of Yellowstone National Park’s identity. But efforts to stabilize the region’s grizzly population have been jeopardized by a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal to strip Endangered Species protections from Greater Yellowstone’s grizzlies. Management would be handed over to the states of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho — all three of which plan to start trophy hunts of grizzlies, while denying them access to prime, biologically suitable habitat on public lands.

Tell the Fish and Wildlife Service that grizzlies in the Yellowstone region are still vulnerable, and it’s too soon to delist!

DEFENDERS OF WILDLIFE

Anti-wildlife interests are using our National Defense bill to pass provisions that would dismantle protections for imperiled wildlife, despite the fact that these measures have absolutely nothing to do with national defense! This is a grossly inappropriate action by members of Congress who are completely preoccupied with pushing special interest agendas, no matter the cost. Have they no shame?

To state the obvious, these provisions don’t belong in a National Defense bill and both the Department of Defense and the White House oppose them!

Urge your senators to vote against any and all anti-wildlife measures in the National Defense Authorization Act!

Congress is grossly overstepping its bounds by advancing political agendas at the expense of imperiled species. We knew the 114th Congress would be anti-wildlife, and it has exceeded our fears with more than 100 attacks on the Endangered Species Act. This newest attack is just another blatant example of Congress substituting politics for science. Help keep anti-wildlife politics out of our National Defense bill!
