We’re very excited for the world premiere of the newest Confluence Films fly fishing epic, WAYPOINTS, which will be released on Friday, November 8. As in years past, we’re thrilled about the opportunity to present WAYPOINTS in Jackson, Wyoming to benefit American Rivers. The screening will take place on Nov. 8 at 7pm at the Pink Garter Theatre on 50 W. Broadway.

WAYPOINTS is Confluence’s fourth full-length movie, following in the very successful footsteps of DRIFT (2008), RISE (2009) and CONNECT (2011). Shot once again in the “multi-segmented, adventure travelougue” style, the new film will transport viewers to some of the most remote fly fishing locations in the world. From the high altitude rivers of the India-Nepal border, to the flats of St. Brandon’s Atoll in the Indian Ocean, to the wilds of Patagonian Chile. There are also segments that feature jungle fishing for trophy saber-toothed payara in Venezuela and wild coastal steelhead in Alaska’s Tongass National Forest.

The new film is aimed at showing all viewers – from hardcore, 300-day-a-year guides to people who’ve never before picked up a fly rod – that fly fishing is a much deeper, more interesting, more varied, and a more fulfilling sport than they’ve been led to believe by mainstream media. Above all, WAYPOINTS focuses on great stories, highlighting some of the sport’s most colorful characters and destinations and capturing these stories on location with the best shooters in the business using the best modern HD digital equipment.

Confluence Films has been a long-time supporter of American Rivers, and owners and founders Chris Patterson and Jim Klug are proud to support American Rivers’ work to protect and restore rivers in the Northern Rockies and across the country.
