Opening Night: The First Movie
Don't miss our largest Opening Night ever on Thursday, March 29.

Join us at Analy High School Auditorium, where for the first time we will screen only one film to the biggest audience in our history.

Aptly titled, The First Movie is a "lyrical and uplifting testament to the enduring power of imagination. At once magical and honest, it stirs the soul like some Iraqi Cinema Paradiso." (Larushka Ivan-Zadeh)  Watch as director Mark Cousins exposes children in a small Kurdish village in Iraq to the magic of cinema by screening films for them, most watching movies for the first time ever, then giving them small video cameras to make their own films. The results are enchanting and profound, and we are able to see a side of Iraq away from war. Do you remember your first movie?

Following the screening, join us at Sebastopol Center for the Arts for our Opening Night Gala Reception.  Mingle with the audience and filmmakers as we kick off this year's festival and get ready for a weekend filled with documentaries, special programs, and events.

An innovative, magical documentary filmed in Iraq about kids' imaginations, storytelling, and filmmaking. Director Mark Cousins went to a small village in the Kurdish North, took a projector, some great films and three small cameras to give to kids. The First Movie is about life when the war tide is out. Do you remember your first movie?
