Please join us for Benicia’s 2nd Annual Film Festival! Benicia Arts and Culture Commission is organizing the Benicia Film Festival which will be held on September 4-6, 2015. The films will be shown on Friday, September 4th and Saturday, September 5th. These short films will vary in genre and come from throughout the United States. We hop to see you there!
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.
