Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival is a bridge for independent non-fiction filmmakers to reach as wide an audience as possible. This is our 13th year of exhibiting non-fiction work of independent filmmakers. Each film programmed for SDFF is a signature of excellence in craft, character and storytelling.
We are driven by an immense curiosity to learn and understand the lives of others, lives different in experience and age from our own. We need documentaries in our lives now more than ever. They are the touchstones of reality from the past and present that can guide us into an enlightened future.
SDFF 2020, an iconic program of Sebastopol Center for the Arts, continues its tradition of highlighting film as art blending exquisite story and craft. There are topical panels made up of attending filmmakers who focus on filmmaking skills and issues. Docs In Progress offers Peer Pitch West: an opportunity to give documentary pitches a test run in a supportive environment with fellow filmmakers providing feedback. SDFF 2019 hosted Peer Pitch for a 2-day session making us the West Coast hub for this Docs In Progress mainstay.
