To announce the Sonoma International Film Festival in 2012, local students constructed the Sonomawood sign,  as a “homey knock-off” of the Hollywood sign. It was erected in early April to welcome visitors and festival goers to the upcoming festivities. After 2 years on show, hopefully we’ll see it again this year! Read more about this project here.

The buzz outside the historic Sebastiani theater was electric on opening night with crowds mingling and shmoozing outside in the warm spring evening. Everyone was eager to see opening night film, The Iceman, starring Ray Liotta.

This year we are desperately looking forward to seeing the opening film Dom Hemingway, starring Jude Law as a “a larger-than-life safecracker” See the trailer here.

The charming opening night event at the beautiful General’s Daughter in Sonoma. This “1864 Victorian was once the home of General Vallejo’s daughter and her husband, the founder of California’s first winery” and it was truly a unique party venue lending to an intimate yet vibrant evening. -venue website

Anyone who had the pleasure of visiting the festival (or Sonoma itself) has experienced the mysterious aura and peace of walking around at night. There’s really nowhere on earth like Sonoma. And that’s why we can’t wait to do it all over again. See you all April 2nd!
