SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Jan. 1, 2022 - PRLog -- (Los Olivos, CA)  The Accessible Outdoors, the new short live action documentary presented by Golden Cage Films and NatureTrack Foundation garnered its' first award at the Hollywood Independent Filmmaker Awards & Festival. Winning the Silver for Best Short Documentary.  This empowering documentary about making nature accessible to everyone is gaining momentum as more film festivals are accepting it into their selections.  So far, the Oregon Documentary Film Festival; Colorado Environmental FF; Flathead Lake International Cinemafest; Oceanside International Film Festival and British Colombia Environmental FF will be screening the doc in their upcoming festivals.  NatureTrack Film Festival proceeds support the NatureTrack organization which takes school children out of the classrooms and onto the beaches and trails of Santa Barbara County all at no charge.

Sue Eisaguirre, founder of NatureTrack added, "As we were shooting the film about incorporating these devices into NatureTrack's outdoor field trips, I realized there was more to tell about the lack of access to nature and the outdoors for disabled people."

Mitchka Saberi and Francisco Lopez of Golden Cage Films noted, "Before making The Accessible Outdoors, we hadn't considered how extensive the topic of disability access is. As two able-bodied people, it wasn't until talking to people with a variety of disabilities we came to realize access to nature isn't an issue to be ignored until it impacts you or someone close to you. We all deserve the ability to experience nature and connect with it, and that ability could easily be taken away from us at any moment. We shouldn't wait until that moment comes to advocate for change in this sector."

Wheelchair users and others with physical disabilities can take the opportunity to get out on the beaches and trails throughout the county, under their own power, all at no charge courtesy of NatureTrack.  Find out more by calling  (805)886-2047 or e-mail Sue@NatureTrack.org.
