Film festival honors AJA Video

The Wild & Scenic Film Festival recently honored AJA Video Systems with the singular honor of Founding Sponsor for their continued support of, and deep commitment to, the festival’s success and growth.

With the help of AJA, the festival has hosted well over 20,000 attendees including more than 400 top filmmakers, celebrities, activists, explorers, and outdoor athletes. Such luminaries include Sir Patrick Stewart, Peter Coyote, Daryl Hannah, Ron Kauk, Colin Beavan, Julia Butterfly Hill, and Jeremy Jones. The Wild & Scenic Film Festival has screened over 500 films, including more premiers than any environmental film festival in the country.

“Only one company, AJA Video Systems, has been a partner from the very beginning,” said Leslie Jacobson, festival producer. “We deeply appreciate their many years of support.”

The Wild and Scenic Film Festival will run Jan. 14-16 in Nevada City. The event is organized and hosted by the South Yuba River Citizens League. For 27 years this organization has been bringing the community together around the protection of the Yuba River Watershed.

“We are honored to again support the Wild & Scenic film festival,” said Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video. “As a Nevada County-based company that has grown into a global provider of technologies for filmmakers, it’s been our pleasure to be a part of this incredible event that celebrates our local area and the independent filmmaking community worldwide.”
