Under the Open Sky 2019

Friday, September 20
Ventura River Steelhead Preserve
5:15 – 9:30 pm

The historic Ventura River Steelhead Preserve will serve as the backdrop for our private screening of a special selection of Mountainfilm films. This will be a different program from Saturday night’s event.

Join us for a locally sourced farm-to-table dinner by Lorraine Lim Catering. When the sun sets we will enjoy a collection of films selected for this special event. We are so excited to be joined by Richard White (R.A.W. Tuba) and Annie Nyborg (Grizzly Country) for Q&A and a deeper look into the making of the films.

All food and drinks are included.

This is a different program from Saturday night’s event. See the film line up here »


Richard Antoine White, aka R.A.W. Tuba, grew up intermittently homeless in Baltimore, and went on to become a world-class symphony musician, professor and the first African American in the world to receive a Doctorate in Music for Tuba Performance. He is the subject of R.A.W. Tuba.

Annie Nyborg is the Director of Sustainability at Peak Design. In her role, she supports filmmakers and photographers in telling important stories to help protect our natural environment. She produced Grizzly Country to capture the spirit of legendary eco-warrior, Doug Peacock, in hopes of inspiring the next generation of conservationists.
