Alexander Valley Drive-In MOVIES in Cloverdale


Alexander Valley Drive-In MOVIES in Cloverdale

Bringing the drive-in movie back to Sonoma County is just one of the milestones achieved by the Alexander Valley Film Society (AVFS) during its fruitful first year. Since its launch last Fall, AVFS has delivered on its commitment to enhance the cultural and educational landscape of Northern Sonoma County.

Thanks to AVFS, local high school students have participated in a Pixar-led animation workshop, served as interns on a feature film shot in Geyserville, and had access to film screenings and film festivals across the Bay Area. Its community film screenings, held in The Clover Theater in Cloverdale and The Raven Film Center in Healdsburg, have thrilled audiences with an array of classic films, independent cinema, documentaries, and Spanish language films.

Next week’s drive-in screening of Jaws will launch the countdown to the Alexander Valley Film Festival on October 22-25, 2015. The festival will highlight Krisha, winner of the Audience Award at SXSW; Güeros, a feature from Mexico City; documentaries on issues of global and local significance, and celebrations at local wineries including Trentadue and Coppola.  

Having woven together a network of community support that includes volunteers, members, and sponsors from across the spectrum of business and civic leaders, the evolution of the AVFS and its series of unfolding achievements serve as a remarkable story of cultural innovation in Sonoma County.
