Ambulante California, California’s own “film festival that’s more like a rock tour,” has announced the lineup for their second annual film festival. The so-called “itinerant film fest” will tour the state from
September 19 – October 4, traveling over 485 square miles up and down the coast while screening 28 films in 21 different public venues, mostly outdoors and always 100%

“Ambulante represents an enormous undertaking by a group of people who work year
round to ensure documentary film keeps reaching an ever-widening audience,” Ambulante
Co-Founder Diego Luna said. “Announcing Ambulante California’s second edition marks a
monumental feat! Together let’s seize this opportunity to share and enjoy documentary
cinema for free in our communities.”

Ambulante Co-Founder, Elena Fortes said, “The first edition of Ambulante California
marked an exciting turn in the life of Ambulante, as it expanded into new territory, taking
on the challenge of attracting different audiences across LA. Now in its second year,
Ambulante California has proven to be a widely successful endeavor in creating a greater
sense of community by linking documentary cinema to a wide range of activities and
environmentally sound urban practices.”

Of the 28 documentaries included in the fest’s program, six are from first-time filmmakers, 12 are L.A.
premieres and 50% of the films are directed by women.
