Sebastopol Documentary Festival Returns in March

Feb 26, 2019


On March 28 - 31, 2019, the  Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival returns! 

For 12 years, SDFF has brought world class documentary films and global filmmakers to Sonoma County; SDFF 2019’s program features 67 films from 18 countries on 8 screens in downtown Sebastopol.

In addition, special programs highlighting the work of composers, audio engineers and editors will be part of the weekend. An event that is certain to sell out is the panel discussion on investigative journalism lead by journalist Lowell Bergman after a screening of the film ‘Factory of Lies’ which deals with journalists in Russia and Russian troll farms.

From women chefs (The Heat) and women who fish for their families in Syria (Waterfolk) to women who find community on skates (Derby Crazy Love) and at the Israeli-Palestinian border (Naila and the Uprising), SDFF 2019 celebrates women’s stories across the world.

While documentaries continue to shine a light on the plight of the voiceless (I’m Leaving Now, From Baghdad to the Bay) and underserved populations (Dodging Bullets, Dawnland, Leitus In Waiting), they also highlight lives and situations that show the best of humanity (The Cat Rescuers, The Woman Who Loves Giraffes, Elephant Path/Njaia Njoku) as well as entertain (Bathtubs Over Broadway, Confluence).

Filmmakers will be on site from as close as Santa Rosa and as far away as Argentina, ready and able to converse with patrons and explore Sonoma County.

Tickets to the Opening Night film (Harvest Season) include an invitation to attend the after party.
