Film fest fuels SOLE outdoor program

The Winter Wildlands Backcountry Film Festival, happening at 7 p.m. Dec. 2 in the Panida Theater, is the annual SOLE fundraiser. Every fifth grader in the Lake Pend Oreille School District gets a SnowSchool Experience to explore and learn about local winter wildlands, thanks to SOLE (Selkirk Outdoor Leadership and Education). The festival’s series of juried films (all of which celebrate the human-powered experience), plus a great holiday silent auction, raffle prizes, brews and special surprises make the festival a family-fun event that’s worth supporting! All proceeds support SOLE’s good work. Ticket info at (928) 351-SOLE
