I attended the Wild & Scenic Film Festival yesterday at Redondo Union High auditorium – the event was presented by the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy.
This is the thirteenth year of the Festival, which originated in the Sacramento area, and only the second time it’s come to the South Bay. It began at 4 p.m. and over the next two hours we were treated to twelve of the short films from the Festival.
Each of the films focused on nature and the environment in general – from Monarch butterflies and extreme hula hooping, to Namibia’s conservation success and a biking/climbing expedition from hell. It was an engaging, enlightening and entertaining afternoon.
Proceeds from the event benefit the PVPLC. Before the screening, the audience learned what the PVPLC does and how they do it. It’s a terrific organization doing important work right here in the South Bay and deserves your support.
