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 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, home of the stellar acoustic music series hosted by Santa Rosa's KRSH Radio program director Andre De Channes, and famous for the popular Celtic Fiddle Music and Irish Jam Sessions every Sunday.

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.

This year, for health and safety reasons in view of ongoing issues regarding COVID-19, our festival will be held online. Stay tuned for more info.

Come experience a celebration of our lives and our world!

We'll see you at the festival!
