The Julian Wild & Scenic Film Festival was part of a 115-city nationwide tour that showcased award-wining films about nature, community activism, adventure, conservation, water, energy and climate change, wildlife, environmental justice, agriculture, Native American and indigenous cultures. The films showcased at the festival combined stellar filmmaking, beautiful cinematography and first-rate storytelling to inform, inspire and ignite solutions and possibilities to restore the earth and human communities while creating a positive future for the next generation.
Julian, a historic gold rush mountain town only an hour from San Diego, was the perfect setting for this amazing festival. Proceeds from the Julian Wild & Scenic Film Festival benefited the Volcan Mountain Foundation, so it's a real shame to see that this festival hasn't ran since 2015.
Awards given included:
Julian Film Festival isn't the only film festival to have stopped running. Middle Coast, Lifetree, Bay Street, SoCal Independent, North x North, Screentest, Minneapolis Underground, Julian Film Fest, San Antonio Independent Christian film festival, and Way Down, have all also ended their festivals.
