Winner of Best Documentary Feature at the Slamdance Film Festival, this film from director Brian Golden Davis dives into the eccentric world of the Federal Duck Stamp Contest—the only juried art competition run by the U.S. government. The contest is among the most successful conservation tools ever instituted, filled with ego, art, big money, and migratory waterfowl. Following six wildlife artists turned competitors who strive to win “the Olympics of wildlife art,” The Million Dollar Duck brings to life this highly competitive contest as the artists are eliminated one by one, leaving a winner whose work will be seen by millions. Discussion with director Brian Golden Davis and subjects from the film, moderated by Paul Pastor
