CALL FOR ENTRIES: Documentary Films



This is our 13th year of exhibiting non-fiction work of independent filmmakers. Each film we program has characters of extraordinary presence, whether animate or not, and compelling stories. Each is a signature of excellence in craft that bridges a filmmakers’ desire to reach an audience. We are known for programming work to this discerning audience that enjoys being challenged as well as entertained.

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 craft 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
