Chosen from 100s of submissions from around the world, the NTFF team is working hard to bring the “best of the best” to our audience in Los Olivos for the upcoming 3rd annual NatureTrack Film Festival! In addition to the 65 selected from submissions through FilmFreeway, the team is also scouting out extraordinary films to curate (outside of judging) into the festival too. For example: NTFF alum Director Chris Smead’s first feature-length film “Highline: A Journey on the Uinta Highline Trail”, Director Eric Becker’s poignant film highlighting the 100th birthday and life of Dee Molenar in “My Friends Were Mountaineers”, and the latest Warren Miller film presented by Volkswagen “Timeless”. Check back often to learn about additional films!
In the coming weeks, NTFF is looking forward to introducing you to more of the directors that will be attending the festival – and updating you on the programs that will be offered throughout the extended weekend.
NatureTrack ignites passion for nature throughout the year by taking school-aged kids onto the local trails and beaches with trained docents for truly remarkable experiences in nature. These experiences help shape developing ideas on the importance of nature in their lives and keeping the environment healthy for generations to come. In an age where young eyes are often drawn for long periods of time to digital screens, NatureTrack takes them to areas where those young eyes are drawn by the cry of birds, the flash of brilliant flowers, the scurry of lizard feet, or the burbling of streams. Real life adventure in their very own backyards!
The NatureTrack Film Festival is an extension that ignites passion for nature through film. All proceeds benefit the NatureTrack Foundation and helps to ensure kids get out of the traditional school room and into the natural classroom with dedicated, trained docents who eagerly show them how exciting a trail can truly be if they focus their eyes and ears – observing and walking as citizen scientists.
During NTFF, some of those dedicated docents will take visitors on a special nature walk early Saturday and Sunday mornings. The perfect way to start each day with a breath of clean, fresh air and the beauty of wildflowers, before settling in for screenings that will expand your experience of our natural world.
