Short Films with Filmmaker Conversations from SDFF 2020

This collection of 6 short films from SDFF 2020 has something for every member of the family scrunched together on the couch.  All of these stories are in keeping with current circumstances — close to home.  

In A Pilgrimage, meet Genevieve Barnhart, a local artist whose iconic sculpture has inspired many ” ‘little women’ to do big things.” We’ll also explore rewilding honeybees,fishing off Bodega Bay, reclaiming a creek full of trash & crawdads, a scamper through memories of a Northern California childhood, and the vulnerable population of our vineyard farmworkers.

Included are conversations with the Directors of Dick Ogg: Fisherman and Eva Rendle, All That Remains. 
Tickets are $10 for the entire program. Don’t miss out on this wonderful collection.We encourage donations beyond your ticket cost. Consider matching what you might have spent on that medium popcorn plus Milk Duds or Raisinets. Online delivery of films is not free for us.

Visit SDFF often for movies that matter.
