    forest and ocean preservation, humanitarian issues, surf, skate, extreme/action sports, sports, martial arts, and

    The Ventura Film Festival opened it’s 2009 events on Monday February 16, 2009 at the Majestic Ventura Theater in

    Ventura, California with a “fun day”. The event marked the 6th anniversary of the Ventura Film Festival which was

    films as works of art and enjoy a fun event that provides support for environmental issues such as forest and ocean

    preservation. From time to time we may give notice of special recognition to certain films.
