The festival will take place in person on Saturday September 30 at Martial Cottle Park in San Jose starting at 6:00pm.

The films are selected from the Wild & Scenic Film Festival library, and highlight stories about people with diverse experiences and identities in the outdoors. Film themes include recreation, activism, community, accessibility, finding belonging, and more!
