By: NatureTreck Film Festival
In just two years, the NatureTrack Film Festival has already attracted the attention of filmmakers around the world. The inaugural festival resulted in over 1,500 film submissions and featured notable outdoor filmmakers like Chris and Keith Malloy, Jeff Johnson, and Chris Burkard. Other artists traveled from as far away as Germany, England and Pakistan to showcase their films. In 2019, Netflix premiered an episode of its hit documentary series "Our Planet" at the festival. Renowned filmmaker and National Geographic photographer, James Balog of "Chasing Ice," brought his newest film "The Human Element" to the 2019 NTFF.
The town of Los Olivos is located just inland and north of Santa Barbara in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, gateway to the Los Padres National Forest. "With Santa Barbara County being the birthplace of Earth Day and the modern environmental movement, it's an ideal location for a film festival that has been enthusiastically embraced by locals, filmmakers and visitors alike," says Sue Eisaguirre, NatureTrack Film Festival founder and director. "In Los Olivos, visitors can enjoy a small-town vibe with world-renowned wineries and restaurants to make their film festival experience even more enjoyable."
The 2020 NatureTrack Film Festival will showcase long and short film submissions in both live and animated form in the categories of Adventure, Animation, Biography, Conservation, Kids Connecting with Nature, Scenic, Student, and a special category called Outdoors & Out of Bounds.
Festival tickets will be available in a variety of packages to suit any budget. A VIP All-Access Pass is $200. Individual tickets are $10; six and 12-packs of tickets are available for $50 and $90 respectively. The festival offers discounted student tickets as well. Tickets can be purchased online by going to www.naturetrackfilmfestival.org.
The NatureTrack Film Festival welcomes sponsor and advertiser inquiries and offers numerous participation levels for businesses and individuals wishing to support the festival. Contact Sue Eisaguirre (firstname.lastname@example.org; 805-886-2047)
