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, screenings during the year, and an annual film festival.
Based on the radical notion that movies could serve as a point of connection and growth, AVFilm now serves more than 5,000 people, 1,000 public school students, and 600 lifelong learners annually in Northern Sonoma County through year-round educational and cultural programming. In 2024, AVFilm will celebrate our 10th annual film festival.
Since 2015, AVFilm has exhibited more than 600 films, logged thousands of volunteer hours, introduced hundreds of filmmakers to patrons in Sonoma County, and created a significant economic impact in the Northern Sonoma County region.
