Ventura Land Trust announces livestream Wild & Scenic Film Festival

Ventura Land Trust is pleased to present its 9th annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour on Friday, October 16th via an exciting new digital livestream format. This signature fundraising event supports Ventura Land Trust’s mission to permanently protect the land, water, wildlife and scenic beauty of the Ventura region for current and future generations.

One of the largest environmental film festivals in North America, the Wild & Scenic Film Festival uses film to inspire activism. For Ventura Land Trust, the festival fosters a deeper understanding of the connection we share with the planet and our role as stewards to keep it healthy. The festival raises $50,000 each year for the organization’s efforts to offer protected open spaces for free public access, build new trails, and provide hands-on environmental education to thousands of Ventura County students.

This year, guests will be part of the festival from the safety of home and the comfort of their athleisure. Snacks and meals included with ticket levels create a fun food and drink atmosphere. A single household film festival ticket is $35. Household film festival tickets and food packages range from $50 to $125.

Ventura filmmaker Jason Hernandez will be featured in the film line-up with his film The Lower Ventura River. The film depicts Ventura Land Trust Preserve Director Dan Hulst’s work managing the impact of humans on sensitive habitat in Ventura’s lower Ventura River and coastal estuary.
