Welcome to the 2021
Culture & Diversity Film Festival!

We celebrate the films that celebrate you!

August 6 - 8, 2021

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 our Filmmaker Meet & Greet to our Interviews, Q&A Sessions, and 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.

We are a traveling festival. Our founding venue in 2018 was the world famous Redwood Cafe in beautiful downtown Cotati, CA, a tour stop for Grammy Award winning music artists and home of the stellar acoustic music series hosted by Santa Rosa's KRSH Radio.

Our 2019 screening venue was historic Raleigh Studios
in Hollywood. Founded in 1915, Raleigh has been home to such legendary film industry icons as Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks.

Raleigh Studios Mary Pickford Theatre

In 2020, for health and safety reasons in view of COVID-19, our festival was held online. We welcomed filmmakers from all over the world to our virtual networking events and Q&A sessions. Check our reviews on Film Freeway! In 2021 we hope that the health concerns are behind us all and we're back in a theater! Check back for updates.

Come experience a celebration of our lives and our world!

We'll see you at the festival!
