Diego Luna to Participate in the AMBULAN-THON!: A Google Hangout Version of the Ambulante Experience

With 72 hours to go on Kickstarter, Ambulante California will host a monumental Google Hangout that will include an incredible line-up of guest speakers.
Filmmakers, festival programmers, and other renown industry personalities will share their excitement for the traveling documentary film festival in unique
ways, aiming to inform people what this great event will entail and hopefully inspire them to support its crowd-funding campaign. This great undertaking by the Ambulante team and friends will bring the festival experience to everyone that joins keeping in line with Ambulante’s idea of connecting with audiences in innovative ways unbound by traditional spaces.

Tune in Monday July 14th from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM to learn how to start a revolution, how to make a movie, how to get that movie seen, breaking
news, live musical sets, how to make delicious guacamole, a reading from 100 Years of Solitude, loteria cards, and many more fun an engaging
activities in an effort to connect the festival and the film community with those who really have the power to enrich the project: the audience. It doesn’t get more immersive than this.

As if this is not enough, Ambulante’s very own Diego Luna will participate in this epic telethon, which will be helmed by Ambulante California’s Christine
Davila. After the event’s conclusion the organizers and some of the guests will head over to “El Chavo” in Los Feliz for drinks to transform the virtual hang a
real shindig. If you are in Los Angeles this is also a great chance to connect face to face with the team, and to witness first hand the outstanding
community spirit of Ambulante.
