    Joshua Tree to Host International Film Festival
    (Joshua Tree, CA, August 3, 2015) A bevvy of films, industry professionals and celebrities will convene in the Hi-Desert during the Joshua Tree International Film Festival, set for September 18-20, 2015 in Joshua Tree, California. With over 60 films (features and shorts), a Red-Carpet Opening Night Gala, confirmed celebrity guests and the presentation of 7 JTIFF Awards to Outstanding Film Makers, the 3-day event has something for everyone. For schedules and information, visit the Official website, http://www.JTIFF.org, or call 760-424-6861.
    Set in the internationally recognized artsy community, and against the mesmerizing beauty of Joshua Tree National Park, the event is a first for the Hi-Desert region, and is being produced by Eric Quander. Of the event, Quander says, “The festival marks a turning point of sorts for our village. With over 1.6 million tourists visiting annually, this event will give folks another reason to stop for a while, and check all we have to offer.” Film makers and audiences are expected from all over, including: Japan, Africa and all parts of Europe. Films will be screened at 7 different venues throughout Downtown JT, and festivities go on until midnight.
    Event organizers are collaborating with local organizations to widen its appeal. On Saturday, in association with Mil-Tree, the powerful documentary about a Vietnam Veteran and his journey to healing himself and his community, Stray Dog, will debut; JT Pride is hosting a block of LGBTQ friendly films, while 29 Excursions welcomes the critically acclaimed, An American Descent, about the first African-American team to climb Mount Denali. There still many volunteer and sponsorship opportunities available, and festival administrators welcome your interest.
