Welcome to the 2020
Culture & Diversity Film Festival!

We celebrate the films that celebrate you!

October 2 - 4, 2020

The Culture & Diversity Film Festival rejoices in the many colors of our lives and our world by showcasing a diverse selection of films from around the globe.

From the Filmmaker Meet & Greet on opening night to the closing night Awards Ceremony, we honor the filmmakers and foster a sense of community and comaraderie among the those who create and those who appreciate the artistic expression of our diverse human lives on film.

Our founding venue is the world famous Redwood Cafe in beautiful downtown Cotati, CA, a place for great food, great music, great company, and great film too! The music concert series at the Cafe attracts world famous artists such as Grammy Award Winners Black Uhuru and blues legend Coco Montoya. Stellar acoustic acts perform regularly courtesy of Santa Rosa's KRSH Radio program director Andre De Channes, and the Cafe is famous for the Celtic Fiddle Music and Irish Jam Sessions every Sunday.


This year we are screening at the Raleigh Studios
Mary Pickford Theatre in Hollywood!
