2014 Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival
Call for Entry Now Open
The Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival is launching its sixth annual celebration of bringing strong, independent documentary films and filmmakers to West Sonoma County. Screening 60 films in 4 days during the 2013 festival, with over 50 filmmakers and subjects in attendance, we had another incredible weekend of films and intense documentary discussion in our new home of the Sebastopol Center for the Arts and with our new theater partner, Rialto Cinemas. 2014 is already shaping up to be even bigger and better. Our next festival will be held March 27-30, 2014. Twice named "One of the Coolest Film Festivals" by MovieMaker Magazine and chosen by the readers of the North Bay Bohemian as the Best Film Festival in Sonoma County for the second year in a row, we look forward to continuing to bring the best films, and their filmmakers, in the world to Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival. Please join us!
