Screen capture of fire map from "The Fire Next Time"
This short film examines the Rim Fire and the diverse coalition working to restore and maintain healthy forests and watersheds, fire-safe communities, and sustainable local economies using a science-based approach.

Filmmakers Collaborative recently released “The Fire Next Time”, a 13-minute preview of a feature-length film titled: “MEGAFIRE at the Rim of the World”. 

The Fire Next Time examines the converging elements that pushed Sierra Nevada forests to a tipping point manifesting in the 2013 Rim Fire. 256,000 acres burned in the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park, exposing the impacts of high-intensity wildfire on watersheds, wildlife, and carbon storage. 

The Rim Fire also forged a coalition of environmentalists, loggers, scientists, officials and land managers called Yosemite Stanislaus Solutions. The group is responding collaboratively to the fire's aftermath, while recognizing the need to forestall the next one.  Their stories are featured in this preview. Enjoy.

“We are seeing large fires in landscapes born and bred of fire, now being destroyed by fire.” 

Kelly Martin -  Chief of Fire and Aviation, Yosemite National Park
