Media Lounge

A film goer meets a film maker at our media lounge.


Meet filmmakers and activists in the Wild & Scenic Media Lounge hosted by Elisa Parker of See Jane Do, a social change multi-media organization. The Media Lounge is THE place for up-to-date information, photos on the green carpet, exclusive interviews with guest filmmakers, activists and festival organizers.  Enjoy free WiFi and a comfortable setting to connect and network.  Plus, be on the lookout for the Media Lounge Street Team.
