The Condor's Shadow
presented by: The Peregrine Fund
Film times: 4pm (doors at 3pm) & 7pm (doors at 6pm).
Tickets: $18 general admission, and $15 for students and military.
Attend a benefit screening of the year-in-the-life documentary film that follows USFWS biologist Joseph Brandt into the world of endangered species recovery. His mission: To enable the California condor to fly free once again.
A species reduced to just 22 birds in 1982, the condor population has been rebuilt to over 400 today. However, the California condor's recovery is not quite complete. The Condor's Shadow will make you appreciate the challenges that remain and the part we can all play in pulling the condor back from the brink of extinction.
All proceeds of this screening will benefit The Peregrine Fund's California Condor Program. In 1984, the non-profit organization established the World Center for Birds of Prey located on 580 acres on a hilltop south of Boise, Idaho. The campus includes administrative headquarters, the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center, and the Herrick Collections Building, which houses a world-class library and the Archives of Falconry. The Peregrine Fund has one of four breeding facilities in the world for California condors, and currently houses the largest captive population of these majestic birds.
A post-screening Q&A will follow with Joseph Brandt, lead biologist USFWS California Condor Recovery Program, special guest from The Peregrine Fund, and filmmaker Jeff McLoughlin.
With every ticket stub from this benefit screening, The Peregrine Fund will honor a family pass (up to 4 guests) to the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center at the World Center for Birds of Prey for a future date of your choosing. This will allow you to experience our courtyard full of native and non-native birds along with daily raptor presentations, interactive exhibits, and tours of the Archives of Falconry. Don’t miss your chance to see California condors with their 9½-foot wingspan right here in Boise at the Condor Cliffs exhibit!

JAKE SHIMABUKURO: In his young career, ukulele wizard Jake Shimabukuro has already redefined a heretofore under-the-radar instrument, been declared a musical “hero” by Rolling Stone, won accolades from the disparate likes of Eddie Vedder, Perez Hilton and Dr. Sanjay Gupta, wowed audiences on TV (Jimmy Kimmel, Conan), earned comparisons to Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, and even played in front of the Queen of England.
With his new record Grand Ukulele, Shimabukuro’s star may burn even brighter.

Sprout Film Festival
presented by: The Arc Idaho
10 am showtime, doors at 9am. 7pm showtime with doors at 6pm
Adults $10 - Students, Seniors & People with Disablities $8.00
About the Festival: The Sprout Film Festival (SFF) is programmed and supported by Sprout. The 12th annual SFF scheduled for Spring 2014, will present a selection of features and shorts in all genres at a New York City venue. People with developmental disabilities as subjects and performers remain marginalized in film and television. This festival aims to raise their profile and showcase the work of this population. By presenting films of artistry, intellect and innovative styles, the SFF hopes to reinforce accurate portrayals of people with developmental disabilities, provide incentive for those in the media to cover these subjects, and expose viewers to important issues related to the field. The goal is an enjoyable and enlightening experience that will help break down stereotypes, promoting a greater acceptance of differences and awareness of similarities.
