Ventura Film Festival Screening More than 100 Films From June 29-July 5, 2009

The Ventura Film Festival is set to have a full week of screenings of more than 100 feature films, shorts, and documentaries from

June 29 through July 5, 2009 at the Majestic Ventura Theater. This includes screenings during the city of Ventura's biggest

street fair that will attract over 45,000 people during the 4th of July weekend.

The Ventura Film Festival is a 100% volunteer based organization that was founded in 2004 by longtime Ventura, California

residents and Ventura High School graduates and has received submissions from BBC award winning filmmakers, popular surf films,

documentaries, and films from USC School of Film graduates and local Brooks Institute film students. The Ventura Film Festival

raises money for forest and ocean preservation and for local and international environmental
charities and other select non-profit organizations. The Ventura Film Festival board of directors includes Dustin Dean (Hollywood

film and dvd executive with Fox Film and Lionsgate), John Godina (US Olympian and one the most decorated track and field athletes

ever), and Jordan Older (professional soccer player, actor, and environmentalist.)

The deadline for submissions is June 1, 2009. Submission instructions can be found at

The Ventura Film Festival has 3 screening locations/theaters with extra large screens, some spanning 40 feet in dimension.

Ventura Film Festival venues include the 2,000 capacity Majestic Ventura Theater in downtown Ventura, California.

The most recent Ventura Film Festival event will be held at the the Elizabeth R. Topping Room at Ventura County's E.P. Foster

Library during the Ventura Art Walk on April 24(FRI), 25(SAT), 26(SUN). The Ventura Film Festival will put on a free event that

Not really sure what this had to do with finding Veterans, so I moved it here.
Patriotism is easy to understand in America; it means looking out for yourself by looking out for your country. Calvin Coolidge Duct tape is like the Force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

Actually, bilbo37, is correct. This post really didn't belong in the location the OP put it and I noticed that earlier, but was a bit too lazy to give it due consideration. So I am not blaming bilbo for moving it to the "Back Office".

What did come to mind when I first saw this announcement about this film festival was that even though it didn't seem to specifically relate to vets, it does sort of fall into a category that all vets are familiar with -- Community Activities. That's why I didn't delete it. But I should have been less lazy.

Sorry to bilbo and the OP.

After giving it some consideration it seems the best place for it is in the Orderly Room.

I hope nobody minds.

Well, if you do, let me know.

Freedom isn't free!

So there's a film festival at school and my friends and i want to make a movie for it. We're in 8th grade, the vids will be shown to 6,7, and 8th graders. We need an idea what should we make the video about?
