Friday, September 13, 2019, 6:00 PM

Ag & Art Film Festival in Vacaville, CA Join us for a film festival celebrating agriculture & art through storytelling and cinema.  The festival also connects festival goers to local farmers and local artists. Catered events will feature chefs who utilize locally-sourced food and wine. Films will screen at various locations in Vacaville, CA. (The film lineup will be announced August 1st.)  The inaugural festival takes place September 13-15 and is happening in conjunction with the City of Vacaville’s VACA (Vacaville Arts & Cultural Alliance) “Arts Week”. Many of the artists who make up Vacaville’s art community will come together and offer multiple performances, showings, and events during the week.  The Opening Night “Meet the Filmmakers” party on Friday night takes place at La Borgata Winery & Distillery in Pleasants Valley. The event will be catered by La Borgata Italian Deli.  The party will introduce the festival filmmakers to fellow “ag and art” loving party guests. Other art groups in Vacaville - musicians & dancers, will perform as part of the art extravaganza planned for the evening. Local painters and sculptors will display their art around the winery as well. The Saturday day screenings will begin at 10:00 AM and end at 5:00 PM with breaks in between and a longer break for lunch. Each screening will include a short, Q&A with the filmmakers (if in attendance.) The location for Saturday’s screenings will be posted on the festival’s website when announced. On Saturday evening, the Ag & Art Film Festival teams up with Downtown Vacaville for a special, free for the community screening of “Biggest Little Farm” in Andrews Park. The night will also include a “farmers market” where families will be able to meet some of their local farmers, peruse farmer & artisan booths, purchase food, and watch a family-friendly, agriculture-themed film under the stars. Beer & wine will also be available to purchase.  A special, VIP Festival Pass-only area will be set up in the park. It will be catered by a chef who will be using locally-sourced food and feature wine from a local winery.  Sunday morning, VIP Festival Pass holders will join filmmakers and local farmers for a casual yet stimulating conversation about agriculture and art over a chef-created Farm Breakfast at a farm in Pleasants Valley. The Sunday day screenings will begin at 10:00 AM and end around 5:00 PM with breaks in between and longer break for lunch. Each screening will be followed by a short, Q&A with the filmmakers (if in attendance.) The location for Sunday's screenings will be posted on the festival’s website when announced.
