Free Screening of "Surface" - a Short Film about Fly Fishing in the Cariboo

Courtesy of the City of Williams Lake:

The City of Williams Lake is pleased to work with the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast Tourism Association (CCCTA) and the Cariboo Reputation Recovery Committee (CRRC) to present Surface, a film from Fly Fusion Films and Vantage Point Media House.

This short film takes Derek Bird of Fly Fusion Magazine and Ross Purnell of Fly Fisherman Magazine deep into the Cariboo. Past the rugged mountains to a nearly inaccessible glacial stream they find some of the best trout waters on the planet. With clean waters filled with fish and wildlife, and stunning scenery, this film captures something much beyond the nature and the sport - it captures the journey, the bond, and the dream.

The Cariboo Reputation Recovery Committee formed in 2014 when Cariboo communities, the CCCTA, and stakeholders came together to continue to promote one of our finest assets - the outdoors. The Cariboo region is internationally recognized as a playground for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, boasting beautiful rivers, lakes and rugged wilderness, along with diverse landscapes, lush forest, and plentiful waterways teeming with wildlife.

To help promote and celebrate this pristine wilderness, the City of Williams Lake, supported by the CCCTA and CRRC, will host a screening of Surface on Thursday, June 1st at the Gibraltar Room. Doors open at 6 pm, with the film starting at 6:30 pm. This free event will feature discussion with industry professionals, a sizzle reel, and the feature film followed by a reception with refreshments. Please join us to celebrate the wild beauty of the Cariboo.
