Since 1916 the Mendocino coast has starred in 17 silent movies and over 40 “talkies.” Notable among these are East of Eden; The Russians Are Coming, The Russians Are Coming; The Dunwich Horror; Summer of ’42; and The Majestic, as well as the long-running TV series, Murder She Wrote. So what better place to host a film festival?
The 12th Annual Mendocino Film Festival (June 1-4, 2017) features film screenings and special events in Mendocino Village and Fort Bragg. The event’s relaxed and intimate feel offers visitors a great chance to interact with filmmakers from around the world while enjoying their work. Set in the natural splendor of the Mendocino coast, this intimate film festival has become a favorite of the cognoscenti.
Louie Psihoyos, the Oscar-winning Director of The Cove, wrote, “Now there’s another great reason to come to Mendocino — they are developing a jewel of a film festival in one of the most beautiful places in the world.”
