Films with Friends film series is sponsored annually by the Friends Trail Tales project. The film series offers four contemporary, feature-length environmental documentaries on topics of current interest. Each showing is preceded by the premiere of a short, student-made documentary most funded by Trail Tales on a locally relevant topic. You can view these student shorts at the Friends Vimeo channel.
Information on the "2016 Films with Friends" series will be added to the "Seasonal Events" link on our homepage by September.
