In the fall of 2014, a group of like-minded community members rallied around a new idea: a local film society that would focus on educational outreach, a screening or two during the year, and maybe even a film festival. We had a radical notion that movies could serve as a point of connection and growth. AVFilm now serves more than 5,000 people and 1,000 students annually in Northern Sonoma County through year-round educational and cultural programming. In 2022, we will celebrate our eighth annual film festival. We have exhibited more than 500 films, logged thousands of volunteer hours, introduced hundreds of filmmakers to our patrons in Sonoma County, and created a significant economic impact in our region.
