The Return
Doug Hawes-Davis, Producer
High Plains Films & Defenders of Wildlife
16 minutes
* World Premier

THE RETURN documents the historic transfer in the spring of 2012 of wild, genetically pure bison from Yellowstone National Park to the Fort Peck tribes of northeastern Montana. For the first time in over 125 years bison roam freely on the Great Plains thanks to the efforts of Robert Magnam, Director of Fort Peck Fish & Game.

Black-Footed Ferrets
Kenton Vaughan, Producer & Director
50 minutes
* World Premier

Their habitat once stretched across the Prairies, but when humans wiped out the one thing they eat, the black-footed ferret disappeared. The only native North American ferret, this mysterious animal became the most endangered mammal species in the world. For many years they were thought to be extinct, and then in 1985 a small population was discovered giving hope. For two decades they survived only in captivity, now a fledgling project is attempting to bring back the black-footed ferret back to Saskatchewan. The dramatic story pf the ferret's reintroduction to the wild unfolds in Return of the Prairie Bandit. Filmed over the course of one year, this documentary looks at the up and downs of a reintroducing a species into the wild.

The Eagle Has Landed
Stan Minasian, Producer
Earthviews Productions
8 minutes
* World Premiere

Founded by biologist Al Cicere and supported by entertainer Dolly Parton, the American Eagle Foundation, located in Dollywood, Tennessee, works to breed and reintroduce into its natural habitat the magnificent bald eagle. The Eagle Has Landed takes us to the foundation's headquarters and shows the biologists raising eagle hatch-lings and releasing juveniles into the wild. The foundation also rescues injured eagles and, if possible, returns them back to the wild or give those that cannot be returned a permanent home at their facility.

Death of a Forest
Mike Pellegatti, Producer
Wild Visions, Inc.
15 minutes
* New York City Premier

With global warming evident in many places around the world, the forests of North America are undergoing huge changes. The pine beetle and pine trees have co-evolved together and until the past 2-3 decades, the numbers of beetles have been kept in check by very cold winters that would kill the beetles, thus limiting their lifespan and ability to reproduce. However, with warmer temperatures during the winters, the beetles are surviving astounding numbers and killing the forests of the western United States and Canada. To date millions of acres of forests and billions of trees are dead and there is no end in sight. Some scientists predict that by 2025, 80% of the western North American forests could be gone. In addition, as we lose these forests we lose a vital source of production of oxygen and carbon dioxide absorption to help with green house gases.
