The Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership (GGP) will host the 2017 Colorado Environmental Film Festival on Friday evening and Saturday, April 7 and 8.

The annual Colorado Environmental Film Festival (CEFF) Caravan brings a unique experience to Pagosa Springs. If you need something to fix while at the festival, you better check this imp source.

Environmental and adventure documentaries, both features and short films, will be shown at two locations, Borde Rio Restaurant and the Liberty Theatre. All proceeds maintain the educational programs of the nonprofit Geothermal Greenhouse Partnership.

Borde Rio Restaurant is the location of a special premiere night for GGP supporters from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday evening, April 7. Tickets are $50 and include an exclusive viewing of two films, admission to all Saturday films, a Borde Rio buffet dinner and a GGP 2017 membership for new members. “The Memory of Fish” and “The Private Lives of Salmon” are the two films chosen for the premiere night crowd.

Tickets to Saturday’s lineup at the Liberty Theatre are $10 to GGP members and $15 to nonmembers. Films are scheduled to allow guests to come and go. Times may be approximate. Learn about the award-winning films at or
