2016 Winter Film Series kicks off on Jan. 8-9 at the Sitka National Historical Park


Have you ever dreamed of exploring remote, untouched wilderness areas throughout Alaska? During the Winter Film Series’ first screening in the new year, you will be able to do just that.

CrownOfTheContinentJoin us at 7 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 8, and at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 9, at the Sitka National Historical Park theater for screenings of Where Ice and Ocean Meet and Crown of the Continent. These films explore the natural and cultural history of Kenai Fjords National Park and Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and serve as an occasion to celebrate two of Alaska’s national parks during the National Park Service’s Centennial Celebration.

Where Ice and Ocean Meet highlights the dynamic and powerful forces that shaped the land within Kenai Fjords National Park and how these forces have impacted the region’s rich marine ecosystem and the people that have called that place home for thousands of years.

The award-winning Crown of the Continent explores the towering peaks, calving glaciers, abundant wildlife and the 13.2 million acres that make up America’s largest national park, Wrangell-St. Elias.

The Winter Film Series, held monthly at Sitka National Historical Park’s Visitor Center, is jointly presented by Sitka National Historical Park, Sitka Conservation Society and the Sitka Sound Science Center. Free popcorn will be provided at each screening.
