applaud you for your dedication to explore the relationship between festivals,

a resident of Mill Valley, as a former mayor of the City of Mill Valley,
as the current president of the Mountain Play Association and an active

FILM FESTIVALS ©1996,
is a three-part mini-series that demystifies the world of film festivals
by showcasing the community support of three major international festivals
in the San Francisco Bay Area. Through the festival's dedication to bring
films of distinction made by new and veteran filmmakers from around the
world to the community, theater goers see screenings of documentaries, feature
films and animation, to name a few, featuring other cultures.
Viewers will meet first-time and legendary filmmakers from Kenya, Norway, France, Venezuela, Germany, and several Americans. Community volunteers' stories enhance the program as they are always on hand to support these film festivals in anyway they can. Now that most cities have their own film festivals, viewers will be treated to the wide array of themes that make many festivals distinct. The other two programs in the three-part mini series are WOMEN MAKE FILMS -- featuring six women filmmakers from around the world -- and CRAZY ABOUT MAKING FILMS -- introducing several of the young directors from Italy, German and France.
