About the Gila River Festival’s 2012 Three-Minute Film Festival:
The Gila River Festival's Three-Minute Film Fest incorporates this year's festival theme: "The Wild River Speaks, focused on stories of the Gila. Submissions should consider thematic elements related to the role of the Gila River in our lives, as the ecological lifeblood of our area; as a connection to nature, our cultural and natural history and sense of place; and as an integral part of human spirituality.

Home to the nation’s first wilderness area, the Gila River in New Mexico is one of the last free-flowing rivers in the southwest. Those who explore the Gila River's watershed know that the largely wild flow of the Gila River is the lifeblood of this national treasure and must be preserved for all time.

The Three-Minute Film Fest will be incorporated in the events of the Gila River Festival. The 3-Minute Film Festival seeks to promote filmmaking by providing a juried exhibition where amateurs, students and professionals can compete in an accessible format. By limiting films to 3 minutes or shorter, the festival creates an opportunity for amateurs and professionals alike.

Prizes will be awarded following the premier of the films on Saturday, September 15th, 2012. For "Best in Show," among other awards, a Michael Berman original edition of his soon to be released book, "Gila: Radical Visions, the Enduring Silence," as well as an photographic print from the book. Michael Berman is a recipient of a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship, for Landscape Photography. To preview his latest work, as well as experience his previous work, visit his website, fragmentedimages.com/.

The films will be shown at the Silco, in downtown Silver City, during the day events of the Gila River Festival; as well as at a night screening on Western New Mexico University’s campus, to accompany the “Electro Gila” art exhibit at the Fine Arts Center Theater.
