The Wild and Scenic Film Festival opened with a visual 3-D event at the Del Oro Theater in Grass Valley Thursday night. Mayor of Grass Valley, Jason Foyer, opened the event welcoming attendees, and thanking SYRCL for bringing the Festival to Grass Valley for the third year.
Three 3-D films were shown during the opening. The first about life in the Arctic, the second about tiny life in extreme conditions, and the third film about the Galapagos Islands. One attendee Adam, was impressed with the quality of the films.
Adam explains the 3-D production enhanced the content rather than flashy effects of computer generated 3-G effects.
His favorite film was the second film depicting the life of a chipmunk in the forest and a scorpion mouse in the desert.
As well as enjoying the 3-D films, Adam was looking forward to the enter Wild and Scenic experience.
A young woman in attendance, Delphine, thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Of the three films shown, Delphine enjoyed learning about the Galapagos Islands.
Delphine also appreciated the addition of the 3-D production saying it added to the quality of the films.
The Wild and Scenic Film Festival runs all weekend long in both Nevada City and Grass Valley.
