The Sight + Sound Film Festival celebrates local talent in Ventura County.

From documentaries to music videos and live music after-parties, the Sight + Sound Film Festival in Oxnard features local works, as well as international selections.

Organizer Carolyn Mullin, the executive director of Oxnard Performing Arts Center, says it’s good to be back after a pause for the pandemic.

"We are really excited, the line up of talent is incredible," she told KCLU. "We have comedy, locally-made music videos, horror. There really is something for everybody at this festival."

The festival runs from Friday through Sunday. Tickets start at $10 and students will receive free admission thanks to this year’s presenting sponsor, Oxnard College (but need to pre-register).

Day-of festival-goers can also get free admission if they walk, bike, or take public transit as part of California Clean Air Day.

Tickets are on sale now at
