Our closing screening will take place at The Kessler Theater in the heart of beautiful, historic Oak Cliff. At 5:00pm, guests are invited to a reception on The Green at The Kessler (outdoor stage & lawn behind The Kessler Theater) where food and beverages will be available for purchase. Inside the theater at 6:30pm, we will share a selection of short films that highlight stories of characters that not only find purpose in the outdoors, but strive to share that opportunity with others. Themes of conservation, food sovereignty and intersectionality will also be discussed both on screen and in thoughtful panel conversations. The evening will close with an intimate performance from Danielle Ponder, a rising R&B/Soul singer who left her career as a New York public defender to pursue her calling in music. Valet parking available.
Following the event, guests that purchase a ticket including after party admission are invited to join us at The Wild Detectives for drinks, dancing, and music by DJ Elkin Pautt as we celebrate our final festival night.
