- on Saturday at 8 p.m., “Indomitable Spirit,” a collection of short films focusing on people overcoming great odds, including a presentation by sponsoring Methow Valley Citizens Council.
- on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Ranch House barn, a collection of short films curated especially for kids and families.
- on Sunday at 8 p.m., “Big Green World,” films about innovators, visionaries and stewards of the natural world.
