TO KICK OFF ANNUAL BIG SCREEN FILM FEST
Airplanes will zoom overhead, giant beavers will plunge, trekkers will climb to the highest of peaks and Alaskan life will be challenged during OmniDome Theater’s sixth annual Big Screen Film Fest in February.
Each weekend of the month, audiences can view a different giant-screen film, and vote to help determine which films are brought to OmniDome Theater for lengthier engagements. The following four films will be featured in the Big Screen Film Fest at OmniDome Theater.
February 5 and 6, Fighter Pilot: Operation Red Flag offers a view into a world not many have seen, a behind the scenes look into what it takes to put together a modern air force mission. The film follows Captain John Stratton in his F-15 Eagle as he participates in Red Flag's complex training. At Red Flag, the combat training exercise for air forces of the U.S. and allied countries, the world’s best pilots meet for the most challenging flying of their careers.
The second weekend, February 12 and 13, Beavers plunges into the rich aquatic habitat of one of nature’s greatest engineers for an intimate look. Set in pristine forests and waters in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, this film follows the story of a family of beavers as they grow, play and transform the world around them!
Kilimanjaro: to the Roof of Africa hits the Dome on February 19 and 20. Join a band of trekkers in this adventure of the human spirit as they journey through rugged terrain and extreme conditions to look out from Africa’s highest point – Mt. Kilimanjaro - the largest freestanding mountain in the world. The trekkers represent a mix of gender, race and life experiences, ranging in age from 12 to 64. Their diversity exemplifies the broad appeal of Kilimanjaro that lures people from around the globe to this phenomenal mountain.
Rounding out Film Fest 2005 is Alaska: Spirit of the Wild, February 26 and 27. Few places on earth impose greater survival challenges and this conflict between climate and life is the central thematic thread of ALASKA. Despite harsh conditions, life in Alaska always finds a way to endure. This film is about the majesty and uniqueness of wild Alaska, and about the resiliency of life itself.
