Event Details

Join Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and Santa Clara County Parks (SCCP) as we co-host the Representation Matters Film Festival. The film program will feature stories about diversity in the outdoors. The festival will take place in person on Friday September 23 at Martial Cottle Park in San Jose starting at 6:30 P.M.

The films are selected from the Wild & Scenic Film Festival library, and highlight stories about people with diverse experiences and identities in the outdoors. Film themes include finding belonging, recreation, activism, community, indigenous culture, and more. You can find a list of the films below.
