SONOMA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
The 15th annual Sonoma International Film Festival set amidst the beauty of Sonoma Valley Wine Country, welcomes filmmakers, film enthusiasts and wine country visitors from all over the world. The lavish five-day event April 11-15 pairs great food, wine, and more than 90 independent films at 8 venues in the Sonoma Valley.
The event features film screenings, industry panels, VIP tents and events, and a special event with prolific filmmaker John Waters. Waters fans will descend on Sonoma to attend his divinely delicious show on Saturday, April 14. A sumptuous Festival Supper Club will set the stage for Waters’ presentation of This Filthy World, his famed one-man show tracing the origins of the trash genre.
A variety of ticket levels offer festival goers the opportunity to attend the show only; dinner, show and a festive after party with filmmakers, or the after party only. The cocktail party begins at 5:30 pm with dinner seating beginning at 6:15 and the show starting at 8:15. The destined to be decadent after party, 9:00 pm until midnight, will feature hors d’oeuvres, wine, and cocktails, two rocking bands and of course, dancing.
