Wild & Scenic Film Festival 2022

The 2022 Wild & Scenic Film Festival is coming to you on Saturday, August 20th! 

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature through film. Wild & Scenic shares an urgent call to action, encouraging festival-goers to learn more about what they can do to save our threatened planet. The Film Festival is Ventura Land Trust's largest annual event to raise funds to protect and conserve Ventura County's open spaces.

Protecting and preserving our open spaces is more important than ever.

Your support through the Wild & Scenic Film Festival helps Ventura Land Trust restore habitat, build trails, plant trees, and clean up our local rivers. VLT preserves are open daily for you to enjoy, for free.

This year, the film festival will be a live experience with films, food, drinks, and a raffle full of items from local businesses.
