Opening Riverfest 2016 will be the Canadian Premiere of YAKONA, BC Director Paul Collins’ multi-award winning film that tells the story of Texas’s San Marcos River and its relationship with the world around it.

YAKONA follows the San Marcos River from source to sea, through the changing seasons, interpreting the river’s time and memory and documenting this relationship between the natural world and man. The film has won five major international awards since its release in 2014, including the coveted SXSW Visions Audience Award at its World Premiere in Austin TX.

Following the premiere, there will be a Q&A with co-director and BC native Paul Collins about the film and the San Marcos River, moderated by FRDC Interim Executive Director Stephen Bruyneel.

Light refreshments will be served.
