This is winemaking, farming and mining country – ensuring spirits are well lubricated, bodies well-fed and, due to distance between venues, well-exercised. Sponsorship by the state (New South Wales) mining council ensures that open...

user
I got to sit down with Zoe Elton, Director of Programming at The Mill Valley Film Festival 3 days before the close of this year's fest. She's been with the Festival since it's inception 32 years ago, when she sort of fell into the position at random. Previously she worked in England as a theatre director and writer. Check out our conversation below to see what she has to say about the video art community in the 80s, how documentary has changed, it feeling like a "vintage year" for film, and o...

user
I am opened to a new world after seeing Michel Orion Scott's The Horse Boy- currently playing at the Mill Valley Film Festival.

The film begins four years after Mother Kristin and father Rupert have given bi...

The festival is called the “6th Annual California Independent Film Festival located in Livermore Valley’s Wine Country. I must admit, I had never been to Livermore’s...

Mill Valley Film Festival Closes

user
The Mill Valley Film Festival wrapped up here this week and as in years past the films themselves were the focus. Outside of New York, the Bay Area is one of the top markets for independent and foreign films, in part because the populace is diverse and highly educated.
