Description

Ag & Art Film Festival in Downtown Vacaville, CA

Join us for a film festival celebrating agriculture & art through storytelling and cinema. The festival also connects festival goers to local farmers and local artists. Catered events will feature chefs who utilize locally-sourced food and wine. Films will screen at DeVille Theatre & Vacaville Opera House in Downtown Vacavile, CA.

The inaugural festival takes place September 13-15 and is happening in conjunction with the City of Vacaville’s VACA (Vacaville Arts & Cultural Alliance) “Arts Week”. Many of the artists who make up Vacaville’s art community will come together and offer multiple performances, showings, and events during the week.


The Opening Night “Meet the Filmmakers” party on Friday night takes place at La Borgata Winery & Distillery in Pleasants Valley. The event will be catered by La Borgata Italian Deli. The party will introduce the festival filmmakers to fellow “ag and art” loving party guests. Other art groups in Vacaville - musicians & dancers, will perform as part of the art extravaganza planned for the evening. Local painters and sculptors will display their art around the winery as well.



The Saturday day screenings will begin at 10:00 AM and end at 5:00 PM with breaks in between and a longer break for lunch. Each screening will include a short, Q&A with the filmmakers (if in attendance.) The location for Saturday’s screenings is DeVille Theatre, 308 Main Street, Downtown Vacaville.



On Saturday evening, the Ag & Art Film Festival teams up with Downtown Vacaville for a special, free for the community screening of “Biggest Little Farm” in Andrews Park. The night will also include a “mini farmers market” where families will be able to meet some of their local farmers, peruse farmer & artisan booths, purchase food, and watch a family-friendly, agriculture-themed film under the stars. Beer & wine will also be available to purchase.

A tented area for Ag & Art Film Festival VIP Festival Pass holders will be catered by Full Belly Farm, wine by Vezer.



Sunday morning, VIP Festival Pass holders will join filmmakers and local farmers for a casual yet stimulating conversation about agriculture and art over a chef-created Farm Breakfast at a farm in Pleasants Valley. It will be catered by True Roots.



The Sunday day screenings will begin at 10:00 AM and end around 5:00 PM with breaks in between and longer break for lunch. Each screening will be followed by a short, Q&A with the filmmakers (if in attendance.) The location for Sunday's screenings will be at Vacaville Opera House, 560 Main Street, Downtown Vacaville.
