ALEXANDER VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL CELEBRATES SEVENTH YEAR IN SPRING 2021
The ALEXANDER VALLEY FILM FESTIVAL (AVFF) will return in a virtual format in 2021!
AVFF regularly showcases and hosts new and emerging talents from all over the world. AVFF2021 will be no different; it will simply take place online! Leveraging our virtual programming since the dawn of COVID, we will create opportunities for the community, students and adults alike, to meet, interact with, and learn from visiting artists. We will also offer deeply discounted tickets to students and neighbors in need so that no one will be turned away.
AVFF features cutting-edge indie films – like 2018’s FREE SOLO and 2019’s PARASITE – and selections of diverse works from and about underrepresented artists and communities. We actively seek:
socially conscious films that depict characters in the richness of their culture and identities; works from directors of color; Latinx-, LGBTQ+-, and female-driven narratives; and youth-oriented stories.
The 2021 Festival will take place April 23-May 2 (Wed-Sun). This event is designed to bring films and experiences to Northern Sonoma County to which the community would otherwise not have access.
Screenings, Q&As, panels and networking events will be conducted online. AVFF will partner with local restaurants, wineries, and distillers to provide unique pick-up events curated to amplify our films, community, and enjoyment of the weekend. Drive-in events will take place, weather permitting.
