Locally created and curated, the inaugural Windsor Independent Film Festival
is a grass roots effort aimed at showcasing locally produced and independently made short films. Over the course of two days, the fest presents these short films in six showing groups that relate to themes. Short documentaries, dramas, comedies, romantic and evocative films are all on the bill; offering a wide range of selections that offer feasts for the eyes and thoughtful fare from Sonoma County residents as well as international filmmakers. The Windsor Independent Film Festival takes place on Friday and Saturday, May 29-30, at the new Raven Theater, 195 Windsor Rd, Windsor. $10-$60. www.windsorfest.com.
