The Sausalito Film Festival returns for second edition

The Sausalito Film Festival returns the weekend of August 13-15 for a second year in its idyllic home at Cavallo Point, the LEED Gold Certified eco-resort on the San Francisco Bay at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge.

The three-day experiential festival pairs screenings with relevant events from live music performances to stimulating panels that include filmmakers and thought provoking industry leaders in discussion about vital topics such as human rights, conservation, autism, health and wellness, climate change and the power of the human spirit. This year’s program focuses on films with a rebellious spirit and provocative content, featuring a stellar line-up of thirteen Exclusive Bay Area Premieres.

“Sausalito and Cavallo Point provide the ideal backdrop for a premiere film festival experience given its picturesque beauty and creative, nonconformist and infamous past which continues to attract artists, writers, philosophers, rock legends and film stars,” says Antonio Capretta, Founder, along with Allison Faust, Curator of the Festival.

This year’s slate of films feature highly sought after Award-Winning documentary, Climate Refugees that explains the growing reality of displaced populations due to environmental disasters. Described by Sherri Quinn on NPR as a “must-see”, the film will be followed by an engaging discussion led by a panel of policy makers and leaders including Director Michael Nash, Supervisor Charles McGlashan and Peter Schwartz, internationally renowned futurist and author. Two other Sundance favorites will premiere - Waste Land and The Dry Land with America Ferrera who will be in attendance. And Bay Area filmmakers, Andrew Thomas and Toby Gleason will screen their Award-Winning film The Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi certain to be a festival favorite for this beloved internationally renowned Bay Area musician.

Other festival highlights include the return of the crowd pleasing Special Secret Screening from an Acclaimed Director (which will not disappoint!) and the Filmmakers Sea Wolf Bay Cruise. Celebrities, Politicians, Community Leaders and a diverse and enthusiastic Bay Area Audience will mingle together to converse, share, discover and enjoy the festival’s rebellious nature alongside the beauty of Cavallo Point.

Sausalito Film Festival is a unique Northern California cinematic experience featuring powerful films that are rebellious in nature, express passion for cultural understanding and stir the creative soul. In a town founded on contradictions, characters and innovators, this year's Festival promises award-winning exclusive film showings and documentaries from around the globe. Screenings are coupled with thought-provoking conversations and after-film presentations that will stimulate and provoke…all set in a picturesque locale, Cavallo Point Lodge at the Golden Gate Bridge, every bit as inspiring as the films themselves.

Cavallo Point Lodge is San Francisco’s new national park lodge, set within Golden Gate National Parks at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge in Marin County. Opened in the summer of 2008, Cavallo Point Lodge is an enchanting and environmentally sustainable “base camp” where the city’s urban edge turns into untamed coastal wildlands. Since opening it has earned much recognition, including Travel + Leisure Magazine naming it one of America’s top new national landmarks. The lodge’s 68 historic rooms and suites, built between 1901 and 1915, once served as officers’ quarters on this former military base, Fort Baker. The lodge also offers 74 newly constructed contemporary rooms and suites set on higher ground, and most offer spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
