Our Mission

The mission of the Benicia Film Festival is to expand the arts and culture offerings of the city. We hope to make this happen by providing an opportunity for individuals and organizations to come together and celebrate independent films, filmmakers and other local artists.  The Benicia Film Festival is designed to include and acknowledge the creative contributions of youth as well as adults while benefiting the community educationally, socially, and economically.
