Please join the Ventura Film Society at 6pm on Sunday December 6th at the Museum of Ventura County for our Season 7 Closing Night Celebration. The two films we’ll be screening are “Cave Digger”, an Oscar-nominated documentary about an artist who spends ten years sculpting an other-worldly cave interior only to be cut off by his money-conscious patrons, and “Finders Keepers”, the hilarious true story of a mummified human leg and the enterprising Southern entrepreneur who refuses to return it to its rightful owner, a recovering OxyContin addict who wants it back. Tickets are $10 general, $7 seniors & $5 students and are available at the VFS Will Call table at the Museum or in advance from www.venturafilmsociety.com. Scratch Food Truck & No-Host Bar from 6pm. Films start at 6:45pm.
The Ventura Film Society is taking a hiatus next year so that VFS founder and director Lorenzo DeStefano can complete and release his new feature documentary film about the amazing musician and composer, Rachel Flowers (www.rachelflowersfilm.com).
Lorenzo stated “It’s been a great 7 seasons during which the VFS has screened nearly 400 compelling alternative films and brought in scores of filmmakers and very special guests. Thanks to all of you who’ve so loyally supported us with your attendance, film sponsorships, donations and as volunteers. All of this could not have been done so successfully without you. We especially thank the City of Ventura Community Partnerships and our numerous sponsoring organizations, including the Ventura Breeze, Bell Arts Factory, Downtown Ventura Partners, , the VC Reporter, the Ventura County Star, KCLU-FM, the Museum of Ventura County, and Cinemark Theatres.”
Please visit www.facebook.com/VenturaFilmSociety as well as www.venturafilmsociety.com for future announcements. The VFS hopes to have several very special screenings for you in 2016.
