AVFilm is a nonprofit organization that provides film & media education to local students in public schools and lifelong learners. AVFilm exhibits free outdoor movies for the Healdsburg and Cloverdale communities, a year-round, independent film series, and produces an annual Film Festival now in its 8th year. AVFest2022 will be April 29-May 8 in Cloverdale, Geyserville, Healdsburg, Windsor, and Santa Rosa.
AVFest regularly showcases and hosts new and emerging talents from all over the world. The Fest creates opportunities for the community to gather, celebrate film, and meet and learn from visiting artists. The Fest also offers deeply discounted tickets to include students and low-income neighbors.
AVFest 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 cultures and identities; works from directors of color; Latinx, LGBTQIA+, and women-driven narratives; and youth-oriented stories.
