Every year I return to the film fest for a number of good reasons: It’s a great excuse to visit Murphys and the surrounding area and enjoy the fall as it sets in. I am always curious about what people out there think or do (it’s an occupational hazard) and I hope the films I sponsor will add another perspective for both myself and for the viewers.

Films sponsored over the years include: Xmas Without China, Emptying the Skies, I Am Chut Wutty,  BehemothDugOut, The Beekeeper's Keeper, Gardeners of the Forest, Hilde and the Chimps, Treasures from the Tides, VAARI a Survival Drop




More than four decades have passed since a whitewater rafting trip through the Grand Canyon captured the imagination of O.A.R.S. president and founder, George Wendt. His journey inspired him to establish the first exclusively oar-powered rafting outfitter permitted to run the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon back in 1969. Based in Angels Camp, the company is now the largest and most geographically diverse river outfitter in the West with destinations and unparalleled experiences on over 35 rivers and coastlines of the world. To date, O.A.R.S. has positively affected the lives of over 500,000 travelers and the company is routinely recognized as a “best in class” outfitter based on education, sustainability, quality of service, spirit of adventure and references.

O.A.R.S. caters to active travelers of all ages and abilities with more than 75 unique itineraries worldwide, including one-day and weekend escapes. For more information on O.A.R.S.’ eco-friendly adventures, visit www.oars.com, email the company at info@oars.com or call 1-800-346-6277.
