Oscillation Transia Film Festival's 4th Annual

OPEN CALL for Filmmakers 

Inspired by America’s next generation, Oscillation Transia is an educational program in service of the environment, solar energy, and community culture. The film festival celebrates sustainability by hosting low-impact film screenings throughout America’s diverse natural landscape using only renewable solar energy, and traveling the United States with a leave-no-trace perspective.

​Combining the love for nature and outdoor cinema, Oscillation Transia will be screening works for its third year in outdoor areas around the U.S. 

Oscillation Transia will utilize amphitheaters located within many parks, and also incorporating "pop up" screenings in more remote locations. Using a projector and solar generator, Oscillation Transia has be able to screen in a wide range of locations -- usually uncharted territory for traditional film festivals. Travel schedule and festival line-up to be announced April 2019.

The selected films will be shown in efforts to inspire all generations to keep traveling, exploring and protecting the planet we all inhabit. Through learning about other communities and cultures we become that much closer to understanding and accepting them. Oscillation Transia hosts free events that are open to all and offers an experience that brings people together through the art of film.

"We recognize film as a powerful medium for change..."
