Film Festival Wrap Up 

The 17th Annual Topanga Film Festival–Now Streaming on Video on Demand

Emcee Adam Roberts announcing the winning films at the awards gala.

Over the course of six days Topanga transformed into a hub of film and ideas, bringing out an enthusiastic crowd that connected over movies, ideas, compelling roundtable discussions, receptions and VIP affairs. As a thank you to the community, the organizers decided to give those who missed it a chance to stream the entire program, with the exception of a few of the films with prior distribution agreements, for a limited time on the film festival website. Go to topangafilminstitute.org and sign up for the Video On Demand section and you’ll receive a
complimentary all access password by email. The films will be available until October 30th.
