2011 Sausalito Film Festival
Date: August 19-21, 2011
Location: Callippe Theater and Ballroom, Cavallo Point Lodge, Sausalito (See Map Below)
This three-day event bills itself as an "experiential" film festival by including discussions and panels with filmmakers and public figures, covering topics from human rights to climate change to the power of the human spirit.
The theme this year is once again Rebellion, which is one of the most frequent recurring topics in a century of cinema. Of thirteen films planned for the event, ten will be Bay Area Premieres.
The Festival's Opening Night event features the Bay Area Premiere of the feature-length documentary Jane's Journey, which focuses on Jane Goodall and her 45 years of work studying the wild chimpanzees of southern Africa.
Another major showing this year is the Dennis Danfung Sundance Award-Winning Afghanistan combat documentary, Hell and Back Again. The special screening will be followed by a panel co-hosted by ABC Correspondent Michael Cerre and ro*co films CEO Annie Roney.
Other screenings include:
Bag It, an award-winning documentary about plastic bags and their effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our bodies.
A new film about iconic Sausalito author Alan Watts titled Why Not Now?
The Festival will reprise their "Special Secret Screening" from an established Director, and the Filmmakers Sea Wolf Bay Cruise.
