The 11th Annual Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival will screen 66 documentaries, including one U.S. premiere and two Academy Award® nominated films with screenings taking place at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, and the Rialto Cinemas® in Sebastopol.
The festival will open with Bird of Prey, directed by Eric Liner, which documents Wildlife cinematographer Neil Rettig’s return to the Philippines as he embarks on a grueling expedition alongside a small but devoted group determined to protect the endangered Philippine eagle.
For the seventh year in a row, Peer Pitch West will partner with SDFF. PPW is an educational program where filmmakers can bring their documentary project, that is anywhere from idea stage to completion, and practice pitching it in the safe space of a room of fellow filmmakers and documentary lovers. Docs In Progress Executive Director Erica Ginsberg will facilitate the session Friday, March 24. Registration open.
New this year: FESTIVAL VILLAGE, made possible by a generous donation from Piazza Hospitality, will be located in the center of downtown Sebastopol, this year. This site provides a central location for filmmaker, patron and volunteer registration plus Box Office for all ticketing and passes during festival weekend. The Village offers both filmmakers and film fans a greater opportunity to experience the Festival.
Tickets and passes on sale now at the SDFF website sebastopolfilm.eventive.org.
