Film Festival Wrap Up 

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

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.
