ALEXANDER VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL: CELEBRATE
The ALEXANDER VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL (AVFF) is the culmination of all of our year-round programs and celebrates annually the third weekend in October. Lauded as the hottest emerging regional film festival in the North Bay, nearly 2,000 people will come for the unique mix of independent cinema with a Hollywood flare. The Festival will feature domestic and international narrative features, documentaries, short films, special programs, winners from the Student Film Competition, community events and screenings, a thrilling Opening Night Celebration, and more!
Beginning in 2018, the student film competition will be part of the curriculum in the public schools of Cloverdale, Geyserville, and Healdsburg.
In addition to screening cutting-edge films, AVFF showcases and hosts new and emerging talents from all over the world. We create opportunities for the community, students and adults alike, to meet, interact with, and learn from visiting artists. We also offer deeply discounted tickets to students so that no one will be turned away.
We serve our community by choosing diverse content and films relevant to the community's needs and interests such as the following:
- LGBTQI filmmakers and stories
- Latin-American filmmakers and stories
- Youth oriented films
- Social consciousness films
- Classic films
- Indie hits/Arthouse films
This event is dedicated to bringing films and experiences to Northern Sonoma County to which the community would otherwise not have access. The 2018 Festival will take place October 18-21, 2018 (Thursday-Sunday) and anchors between The Clover Theater in Cloverdale and Raven Film Center in Healdsburg plus other venues throughout Northern Sonoma County.
