The Ventana Wilderness Alliance will present its first “Wild And Scenic” Film Festival at the Del Mar Theatre next Thursday, October 25th. The Del Mar is located in downtown Santa Cruz. The Festival will get underway at 7:00 p.m., and will end no later than 10:00 o’clock. I definitely encourage you to attend, and I can promise you that I’ll be there. I am slated to act as a kind of “Master of Ceremonies” for the evening.
You can get more information, and buy a ticket (which is only $10.00), by clicking on the links I provide in today’s transcript. The Festival is a benefit for the Ventana Wilderness Alliance. If you join, at the $25 level, a free ticket comes along with your membership. The ten films that will be shown reflect the environmental challenges and successes familiar to residents of California’s Central Coast. According to Bruce Bratton, who has reviewed a lot of films in his career, these films are “stunning, impressive, [and] important.”
No kidding, this really is a great opportunity to see some powerful films, and to help protect public lands in the Big Sur and Ventana region. The Wild And Scenic Film Festival, originally conceived by the South Yuba River Citizen’s League, is intended as a call to action. The films illustrate the Earth’s beauty, the conservation challenges we face, and the innovative tactics that many communities are using to make a difference.
