BILLINGS, Mont. — A video about oil and gas development in Montana and produced by Billings videographer Eric Warren has caught the attention of Josh Fox (Gasland and Gasland II) and the organizers of a national film festival.

Mixing Oil and Water will be featured at Northern Plains Resource Council’s sixth annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival. Mark your calendar for Friday, Sept. 12, at the Babcock Theatre for two hours of fun, engaging, and short independent films about our natural environment – issues, adventure, inspiration.

Northern Plains Resource Council commissioned Warren to produce the 10-minute video on fracking in Montana’s Beartooth Front and the Bakken. The video was selected by Gasland and Gasland II producer Josh Fox as his featured video of the week on August 8, 2014. It also drew praise by the South Yuba River Citizens League, which organizes the national Wild & Scenic Film Festival.

Tickets are $10 at the door, and $8 bought in advance. Door prizes will be given out during the evening. Carter’s Brewing will serve microbrews. There also will be snacks and other beverages available for purchase.
