Range of Light Film Festival

The Yosemite-based cineparty honors movies made with a thirst for nature.



    THE YOSEMITE VALLEY VISITOR CENTER: Need we say more? Yes, we need, but of course this festival will be about meadows and mountains and adventure and big ideas. The 2014 offerings are pretty winsome, from "Love in the Tetons" -- great name -- to "The Sufferfest" which details the lure of 14,000-foot peaks. Not all of the films are new, but they're all themed to outdoorsian pursuits, in general. Oh, and the larger theme of the 2014 festival? There is one: 150 Years of Yosemite. Jelly Bread, the fest's "favorite soul and funk collective" will play, and there shall be panels, too. Oh, yeah, and El Capitan, and Glacier Point, and the river, and the meadows, and the Big Trees, practically a toot and a whistle outside the door. How many fests can claim that? Let's just call Range of Light the uncrampiest, wide-space-iest movie gathering in all the West. It has to be, with Yosemite just outside the screening room.
