CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A group of adventure seekers and nature enthusiasts in the Charlottesville area had a chance to see some of the world's most beautiful sights on the big screen.

The festival featured a number of short films showcasing outdoor adventure and mountain culture.

The Shenandoah National Park Trust hosted the event, and money from the ticket sales will benefit the park.

“Charlottesville and Albemarle County is right at the boundary of Shenandoah national park we can leave the movies and with under a half an hour we're right at the doorstep of Shenandoah national park. So we love getting people in their velvet chairs and being excited about being outdoors but then we can then in the same breath say now go out and play,” said Susan Sherman, Shenandoah National Park Trust.

The film festival continues on Monday night at the Paramount Theater from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
