Film festival moving to Healdsburg
The Bodega Bay International Short Film Festival, which debuted in 2011, announced Thursday that it is be moving to Wine Country, where it will be renamed the Healdsburg International Short Film Festival. The three-day festival showcases films on a range of genres will be held September 21-23, 2o12.
Last year’s event, held at Bodega Bay’s UCD Bodega Marine Lab, featured 98 films from 26 countries. Founders Pamela and Kirk Demorest had hoped to keep the festival in Bodega Bay but after just one year, interest in the festival outgrew their facilities.
A PBS television series called the “The Bodgea Bay International Short Film Festival’s World of Short Films,” is currently airing Saturdays on KRCB at 11:30 p.m. The series will be renamed next season reflecting the move to Healdsburg.
The festival is being presented by the Healdsburg Center For the Arts with its partner, The Arthouse Company, LLC., who founded the 2011 Bodega Bay Festival. Tickets are not yet available.
