Sonoma International Film Festival

Sonoma International Film Festival

The Sonoma International Film Festival (SIFF) is presented by the Sonoma Film Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, as a welcoming, entertaining and inspiring cinematic experience that supports and promotes independent films, celebrates the cultural diversity in the Sonoma Valley through film, and funds visual arts in education.


 

The Sonoma International Film Festival takes place each spring in the beautiful wine country community of Sonoma, California.  The festival is widely acknowledged as one of the top 10 destination festivals in the world, with food, wine, a relaxed Mediterranean climate and lifestyle, artistic and natural beauty … all providing the perfect accompaniment to enjoying the highest quality new independent filmmaking.

The Sonoma International Film Festival has come a long way from its origins.  The festival originated by Sonoma locals and friends Carolyn Stolman and Jerry Seltzer.  The first two festivals were produced under the fiscal sponsorship of Sonoma's Sister Cities Programand held in the early fall (1997 and 1998).  Theyincluded participation by industry luminaries (and regional residents) Danny Glover, Francis Ford Coppola and John Lasseter.
