BLM to Premiere New Film about Northern Alaska

FAIRBANKS, Alaska —The Bureau of Land Management will host a premiere of its new film “Arctic Visions & Voices” at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center in Fairbanks on August 7. The 34-minute film celebrates the landscapes, natural history, and people of northern Alaska with a focus on the Dalton Highway area.

The premiere, sponsored by the Alaska Public Lands Information Center and Alaska Geographic, is free and open to the public. A reception will start at 7 p.m., with the film screening at 8 p.m.

Post Modern Company of Denver, Colorado, produced “Arctic Visions & Voices” for the BLM. Last year the company completed a shorter version of the film that is shown daily at the Arctic Interagency Visitor Center in Coldfoot. That version won Post Modern and the BLM a bronze Telly Award in the travel/tourism category in June. The Telly Award recognizes the best commercials, programs, video and film productions, and Web-based video content.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2012, activities on public lands generated $4.6 billion in revenue, much of which was shared with the States where the activities occurred. In addition, public lands contributed more than $112 billion to the U.S. economy and helped support more than 500,000 jobs.
