Local film festival is world-class

Organizers of the 30th annual Wine Country Film Festival (WCFF) are putting together an unforgettable, world-class program

Wine Country’s original film festival takes place Sept. 22-25 at select venues in Kenwood and Glen Ellen including Muscardini Cellars (with outdoor movies), Dunbar School, Belos Cavalos, and The KenWood Restaurant.

Through movie-like magic, these community venues will be transformed into state-of-the-art movie theaters. Activities include discussions before and after films, with attending filmmakers and other special guests, an art reception and show at Muscardini Cellars celebrating the artists who have contributed to WCFF posters over the years, live performances, tasty food, delicious wine (of course), and much more.

Individual film tickets can be purchased day of show. Cash only. 75 Local Passes are available at $75 per pass (for Sonoma County residents only), on sale now. Each Local Pass includes all regular film screenings including opening and closing night films. Food and beverages and special presentations are not included. Contact the festival office at 935-3456 or to purchase a pass.

A printed program of films and special events will be available at each venue and online by Sep. 14 at

If you can volunteer, WCFF is in need of ticket sellers, projectionists, a webmaster and a volunteer coordinator. Call Justine Ashton 935-3456 or by email

Wine Country Film Festival internships now open

Founded in 1986, the Wine Country Film Festival is a nonprofit that aims to promote creativity and true cultural exchange. Dedicated to bringing attention to the arts, the environment, and the world, WCFF presents an innovative program of films, panel discussions, art exhibits, and musical performances in select venues in Kenwood and Glen Ellen, Sept. 22-26.

People interested in event production will find internships an excellent hands-on learning opportunity. Responsibilities include communications and marketing, sponsorship development, social media, computer support, graphic design, and curating the film program.

Interns must have a car or access to public transportation, be friendly and professional.

During the summer months a weekday schedule is flexible. Interns often work at home with one weekday in the Festival office in Glen Ellen.

Benefits include a stipend, course credit when applicable, letters of recommendation, Film Festival vouchers, and access to WCFF events.

If interested, please contact Justine Ashton, Intern Coordinator at or call 935-3456.
