Event description

Description

Celebrate the art of cinema, craft beer, and locally sourced cuisine with the Mendocino Film Festival and the North Coast Brewing Company on Thursday, October 25, at 6:30 pm for a special benefit dinner and film screening. The dinner and screening will take place at The Sequoia Room, home to North Coast Brewing Company’s jazz performance series.

The $75 ticket includes a three-course prix fixe meal, paired with North Coast Brewing Company beers, and a screening of Holly Near: Singing for Our Lives, directed by Jim Brown. The screening will be introduced by the film's producer, Donna Korones, and she will be available for questions following the screening.

This screening is recommended for patrons 21 years old and over.

Holly Near: Singing for Our Lives - Singer, songwriter, and social activist Holly Near has been performing for well over 50 years and in the process created the first soundtrack of the women’s movement. From small-town Northern California to sold-out shows on some of the most iconic stages to million-person peace marches, Singing for Our Lives documents the story of the activist and her art. It also serves as an important testament to a time—a time of protest and coalition building, and the weaving of a multicultural consciousness always rooted in contemporary activism. Featuring Gloria Steinem, Jane Fonda, Ronnie Gilbert, and Tom Hayden with appearances by Pete Seeger, and others, this film elevates Near to her deserved status of iconic artist and activist, and speaks to anyone who believes in peace, justice, feminism, and humanity. Directed by Jim Brown. 70 min.

Please make a note of your dinner preference (shrimp scampi, chicken dijon with sautéed vegetables, or roasted brassicas and local mushrooms) when you select your ticket type. Space is limited and seats will sell out. Thank you to our host and sponsor, The North Coast Brewing Company for supporting this event. All proceeds benefit the 14th Mendocino Film Festival, May 30- June 2, 2019.

See you at the movies!
