What began as an experiment in 2014, to reach new audiences and build a local film community in our parks, has become an annual tradition - celebrating 10 years of local films in local parks.
Join us August 28-September 2 for 9 screening events in 8 parks across the city, featuring 2023's 15 Official Selections, familiar favorites from our first ten years, and more!
Coming to Parks August 28 - September 2

10 years is a milestone, but we're always looking ahead to what's ahead. Join us in the parks for 15 Official Selections that look toward the future with the tingling, electric anticipation of a shuttle on the launchpad or a sprinter in the starter's block. Standing in the unknown, between fight and flight, it takes courage, innovation, an obstinate belief in yourself, and a foolhardy feeling of invincibility to press on. Come with us on the adventure as we discover what's next!
Being a filmmaker takes incredible vision. Whether you're exploring the past, pondering the future, or inventing whole new worlds to explore, a filmmaker's vision is their guiding light down the path of imagination. In our 15 2023 Official Selections, filmmakers of all stripes, from all over the city, share their visions and take us along on journeys of self-exploration, romance, hard work, coming danger, and more.
