Petaluma International Film Festival
This year's film festival promises a heady mix of established masters and breakout newbies. Over 3 days in October, discover rarely seen short films and features by directors, screenwriters, actors, and producers from around the globe, including the Middle East, Japan, the Netherlands, Greece, Spain, Germany, and our very own Sonoma County. All of the films are in English or include English subtitles. Be one of the first of your friends to see the newest French film of acclaimed director/writer/producer Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, Taken, and The Fifth Element), The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele Blanc, which pairs a Belle Epoque heroine with a…pterodactyl??? Yes, it's true, and you'll definitely want to see this film, based on author Jacques Tardi's historical fantasy novel series, for yourself. Another exciting addition to the Petaluma International Film Festival 2014 roster is the documentary Balkan Spirit, featuring Angelina Jolie and an international cast of creative artists. Some of the cinematic screenings offer a unique chance to meet the filmmakers, with Q & A sessions included. Check the schedule for the latest additions. Tickets for each showing are $11, and can be purchased at Boulevard Cinemas in person or on their website [http://www.cinemawest.com/location?house_id=9628]. To order a $150 Festival Pass, call 415-251-8433. If you are a filmmaker, submissions for this year's festival are open until August 15, 2014, and there's no entry fee.
