Park Film Fest

 

We held our third-annual ParkFilm Fest in Los Angeles at Paramount Studios on Saturday, May 5 where we watched and celebrated a few of the famous movies that have been filmed in California's state parks. This year was a movie marathon of the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies. We had a great crowd, and many special guests, including various actors from the films who did a Q&A and signed autographs.

ORGANIZERS

For almost ninety years, California's motion picture industry and more recently, its television industry, have used state parks for locations. The partnership continues to this day, providing both world wide entertainment and great economic benefit to California. California State Parks Foundation (CSPF) will use funds raised by ParkFilm Fest to help offset severe state budget cuts that threaten all California state parks.

The Environmental Media Association (EMA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to harnessing the power of the entertainment industry and the media to educate the global public on environmental issues and motivate sustainable lifestyles.
