TWO UPCOMING FILM FESTIVALS IN SACRAMENTO
Sacramento is rich in film production locations so there is no surprise that California’s capital is also home to two regular early-year film festivals.
The 13th Annual Sacramento Jewish Film Festival (this year February 6 and 7) takes place at the Crest Theatre every February. Celebrating a Bar Mitzvah year, the 2010 Sacramento Jewish Film Festival brings feature films from around the globe to the Crest Theatre.
Filmmakers world-wide will descend on Sacramento for the Sacramento International Film Festival (March 21 to April 4) for a host of uncompromising documentaries, shorts and feature films.
Peacefully located in a leafy valley of scenic rivers and canopies of trees, Sacramento is a cosmopolitan convergence of tall, gleaming buildings, hearty Victorians, splendid restaurants and shops, a vibrant arts scene, and a virtual cornucopia of state of the art meeting facilities. Sacramento has been called a snapshot of Wild West history in a modern, world-class city.
Its amenities, combined with the rich history of California's Wild West, help visitors once again Discover Gold. If you really want to visit the past, step back in time to the California Gold Rush era in Old Sacramento, a 28-acre town of historic buildings, museums and monuments. With strong preservation efforts, the wooden sidewalks, horse-drawn carriages, Pony Express monuments and Mississippi-style riverboats reflect the nostalgic appeal of early American history.
