Hi folks! We’re proud to announce that Bravo y Grande is an official selection of the Hill Country Film Festival and will be included in the online virtual festival (due to Covid-19) taking place May 9-16. We’re grateful for the honor and for folks to get a chance to see it!
Effective Monday March 23, the Rio Grande will be closed to river trips in Big Bend National Park and the Rio Grande Wild and Scenic River in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). In the meantime however, you are invited to take a virtual trip through the Lower Canyons of the Rio Grande in the film Bravo y Grande.
“Bravo y Grande is a much welcomed and long overdue glimpse at the majesty and grandeur of the Rio Grande’s Lower Canyons, its stunning canyon scenery, its powerful whitewater, and its compelling natural history. The film’s cast bring numerous poignant insights into what may be the least accessible river stretch in the Lower 48 states. Quite simply, I cannot imagine a more rewarding way to spend an hour than watching this lovely journey into the Lower Canyons.”
Keith Bowden, author of The Tecate Journals: Seventy Days on the Rio Grande
Bravo y Grande was produced by the Big Bend Natural History Association and Brazos Film & Video in cooperation with the National Park Service and made possible by a funding award from the National Park Service and Outdoor Foundation along with financial and in-kind contributions from Brazos Film & Video, Big Bend River Tours, Desert Sports, Far Flung Outdoor Center, and the Big Bend Natural History Association.
Bravo y Grande is now available on DVD from the Big Bend Natural History Association here

We are looking to premiere it sometime in June. Stay tuned…
We’re excited to be able to share the trailer for Bravo Y Grande. We’re hoping to have the film available in May – the narration script is being revised and we’re still trying to nail down a certain very special person to do the narration. And then there’s more to do after that…
