Jenny believes that filmmaking enriches lives and that students of all ages should have access to this essential and vital art form. When Jenny isn’t making movies, you can find her huffing and puffing up Fitch Mountain with her dog Annie, yelling at the top of her lungs at one of her teen sons’ sporting events, or making dinner with her husband Rick in the kitchen of their Healdsburg farmhouse.

Hillary Kambour

Vice Chair
Hillary (she/her) is a retired trial and appellate attorney who spend most of her career representing abused, abandoned, and neglected children. Since moving to Dry Creek Valley in 2015, Hillary is busy in her garden, volunteering around the area, running, hiking, and biking, and trying to become proficient in Spanish. She lives with her husband Michael and their adorable Labrahula (really a mutt) Ziggy. Hillary’s first love was film. She spent her tweens holed up in a local theater watching classic films, her parenting years watching thrillers, and until COVID, never went more than a week or two without a movie theater experience. She loves movies —- but mostly loves to watch them on the big screen with the “ooohs” and “ahhhhs” of her fellow moviegoers around her.

Ann Elston

Ann (she/her) joined the board of AVFilm in 2019. She and her husband, Larry Lossing, have practiced law together for 40 years, most of it in San Francisco. Now full-time in Sonoma County, Ann enjoys country living, spending days in the gardens and orchard. Education in all its forms and formats, including film, has always been a very high priority for her. She lived part-time in desperately poor Niger in the early 2000s where she saw first-hand that video could be an effective tool to educate a mostly illiterate community. Ann serves on the HR committee, a good assignment for an almost retired lawyer who specialized in employment law.
