Ojai Film Festival Screening #1

  • Chaparrel High School 414 East Ojai Avenue Ojai, CA, 93023 United States (map)

Please join us for one of our two screenings at the Ojai Film Festival!

Director, Erin Palmquist will be in attendance for this screening.

The Ojai Film Festival provides audiences a diverse lineup of titles from around the world. Past entries have represented over 43 countries. Ojai’s growing importance on the festival circuit is reflected in the fact that legendary Hollywood producer Peter Guber told the audience at a recent Toronto International Film Festival that “Ojai is the next Telluride.”

Now in its 18th year, the festival continues its commitment to enriching the human spirit by seeking out important films that in some way uplift people, help audiences feel good about being members of the human race or encourage them to live meaningful lives inspired by the examples of others.
