Every artist needs an outlet for his or her work, and for 16 years, the Sacramento International Film Festival has helped filmmakers showcase their creativity and ingenuity on the big screen in Sacramento.

After this year’s events, the Sacramento Film Festival will be the longest running film festival in the region. As always, the event will showcase filmmaker talent from all over the nation.

In the past, the festival has showcased such films as David Baugnon’s “Matisyahu” in ‘05 and featured guests including John Daly, producer of “Platoon” and “The Terminator.”

Each year, the festival consistently provides local and international filmmakers with an effective way to present their message to the public.

“For some of [the filmmakers]… that’s their forum,” explained Victoria Gemmill, a member of the film festival’s planning committee. “It is important for filmmakers to have an outlet.”

Gemmill says there is a broad spectrum of films on the ticket to entertain a diverse audience.

“We have quite a few films that will appeal to an African American audience,” Gemmill said, “[and] some environmental films that will appeal to environmental groups.”

Gemmill also said that the committee is working hard to secure a cast of special guests who will appeal to a broad audience.

“Most of our material will become more consistent in March,” Gemmill explained. “And if we get [the special guests], we will have a much wider market.”

One film in particular that Gemmill is excited about is called “Barbershop Punk,” a documentary created by Georgia Sugimura Archer and Kristin Armfield. The film deals with the question of what rights a person is entitled to when posting content on the Internet.

“That is a big deal…we are not getting all the information,” says Gemmill of Internet providers erasing or “filtering” a person’s posted content without their permission. “It is a violation of our first amendment rights.”

The Sacramento Film Festival plays an important role in delivering current issues to the audience in an accessible, entertaining way.

“People are more open to media arts when [hearing about] today’s issues,” Gemmill says.

The festival will be held in the new theater at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, although the committee is still finalizing the decision.

Gemmill says the festival will enlighten and entertain attendees while providing an audience to filmmakers and featured guests alike.

“We are happy that we can provide local artists with this support,” Gemmill says.
