Mountainous Landscape

Life in the Land has modest funding to help support organizations or communities in hosting a film screening, post-film discussion, or Advocate Through Story workshop.
We can help with technical support, venue/refreshment costs, or work with local residents to facilitate a discussion in a way that is customized for your group's needs.

Advocate Through Story

The team behind Life in the Land & Stories for Action offers Advocate Through Story workshops. Have a storytelling professional guide your organization or community through a workshop to help the group better verbally articulate the story of your work, or the collaborative of work. This workshop can strengthen internal mission building, community cohesion, and help externally for approaching potential funders & grants.

"You’re staging a series of productions that has the potential to change the mindset of Americans to recognize their responsibilities in promoting the enhancement of a working landscape through supporting and recognizing those of us that are stewarding their precious land for its and society's sake. Thanks for including me in this effort. It gives solace to those of us who have developed a land ethic based on what nature has taught us and the strength to embrace our responsibility as nature's and society's caretakers.         

                                                                                                          - Jim Hagenbarth, featured voice, rancher, Big Hole Valley

“In this increasingly divisive and combative socio-political climate that we are in, Life in the Land shows that people of all backgrounds can come together and make effective change. It reminds us that no matter what happens on the political stage, we are all integrated into these ecosystems together.”                                                              - Rebecca Ramsey, featured voice, Swan Valley Connections

“You've made a wonderful contribution to the effort to raise awareness of the history and these current issues, and to nurture respect for the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribes. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.”       

                                                                                                                           - Representative from the Salish-Pend d'Oreille Culture Committee

"They are beautiful films and capture how the communities, people, and the landscapes are connected, and have to be, in order to flourish. Thank you for telling our stories!"                                         - Montana resident

“Life in the Land engages in a process which recognizes that all of us are connected to where we live. It brings a chance to work towards more connection with nature and human nature. It gets us the tool that uses science and publicity in ways that are effective to galvanize local communities.”                                                                       - Cliff Montagne, BioRegions International
