Film

The 2019 Film Fest will feature the official selections of the International Fly Fishing Film Festival®. Future events will showcase regional filmmakers that draw inspiration from or celebrate our natural environment; both non-fiction and fiction projects are welcome.


We're excited to announce that one of the eight official film selections was created and produced by Blue Forest Films on our beautiful North Shore!

International Fly Fishing Film Festival® consists of short and feature length films produced by professional filmmakers from all corners of the globe, showcasing the passion, lifestyle and culture of fly fishing.

Bigotry to Brook Trout Overview:

Bigotry to Brook Trout features one man’s transformation from a life of ignorance and hate to quiet solitude on the waters of northern Minnesota. Hard truth and honest self-reflection parallel the beauty of Fall brook trout in this rare display of vulnerability and acceptance. Geoff Vukelich owns his past and speaks his truth, reminding us that we have the capacity to change our lives.

Only at IF4™ in 2019! Filmmaker: Blue Forest Films
