Alexander Valley Film Society

Through the transformative power of film, the Alexander Valley Film Society (AVFS) brings global perspectives into our community, builds partnerships to broaden our impact, and educates, empowers, and engages students of all ages.

The Alexander Valley Film Society’s Full Circle Cinema program offers media literacy and video production skills training for schools. With this program, teachers can integrate media arts education into core classes to leverage existing curricula or take advantage of standalone classes designed to enhance class projects.
