Film: ALIVE INSIDE, directed by Michael Rossato-Bennett
Benefits: ALIVE INSIDE Theatrical Release
I'm not sure we could ever put to words, what we witnessed after the screening of Alive Inside. Watching the audience respond during the screening was amazing, but witnessing the impact it had on our audience and our community after the screening, was nothing shy of AWESOME!
This film is going to change lives!!
Below is the blurb we posted before the screening:
"This past January, we joined thousands at the Sundance Film Festival. There we had the pleasure of watching this unbelievable documentary. It went on to win the coveted Audience Award. Since January we have been working hard to find a way to screen this amazing doc, and on June 10th - we got the thumbs up! We were inspired and uplifted by this film - and after we left the theater - we thought, everyone needs to see this film. And so it is an honor for us to be screening this film, with proceeds benefiting its theatrical release in select theaters all over the country in July.
The story behind this doc is truly magical and traces the steps of philanthropist Dan Cohen over the course of several years. What finally prompted those involved with the film, to finish it, was a response they received to a short video posted on YouTube. Check it out...we know you'll have trouble holding back your tears as we did..."
A BIG thank you goes out to STEWART EDWARD ALLEN DESIGN for sponsoring this film!
THE PULSE OF THE WORLD directed by Jesse Wippert

Film: The Pulse of the World, directed by Jesse Wippert
Cause: Konteh Kunda School of Music
A documentary about Griots (musicians, oral historians, storytellers) of The Gambia, the importance of preserving West African culture, and the power of music as a universal language.
We are beyond excited to have partnered with our good friend Steve Pile on this screening. Steve Pile is the co-founder of a music school in Gambia called Konteh Kunda. He has put his blood, sweat and tears in to this project and it was our honor to help him raise critical funds during this screening - to finish building his school. This documentary was about the Griots of Gambia and their plight to keep their culture and traditions alive, through music. It's a beautiful journey, discovery and tale for all to hear as they celebrate their past, present and future. And the school that Steve Pile is helping to build will protect and strengthen their heritage.
We hosted an After Party at Bergamot Alley. Steve's good friend, DJ Phil came up from San Francisco to spin African Vinyl and Steve Pile and Kim were special guest performers.
Thank you to our sponsors: Raven Film Center, VML Russian River Winery, Bergamot Alley and Russian River Chamber Music.

Muscle Shoals screened on March 21st and it was a huge hit! In 2013 we had the opportunity to watch the premier of this doc at the Sundance Film Festival, and were lucky enough to join the cast and crew at the post film after party. Cinematographer Anthony Arendt joined us for the March screening and the post-film Q&A was amazing! Thanks to all who joined us and helped to raise critical funds for The Overture Project!
Proceeds from this screening were donated to The Overture Project - a music education program for youth in Healdsburg.
Big thanks to our partners and sponsors - Raven Film Center, Truett Hurst Winery and Dry Creek Inn. We couldn't do this without you.
THE HORSE BOY directed by Michel Orion Scott
February 6, 2014
Film: The Horse Boy, directed by Michel Orion Scott
Cause: The Horse Boy Foundation
The Horse Boy seemed like the perfect way to kick off our series. It's an incredible doc about a parents love and journey to the ends of the earth to fight for their son struggling with autism. The story is inspiring, challenging, compelling and a reminder of what we are capable of when put to the test. This film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to win many awards at other festivals, including the audience award at SXSW.
Co-Director Kim Carroll scored this film and was there for the post film Q&A. Their discussion of the process of writing music for film kept our audience engaged in their seats well after the film ended.
Proceeds from The Horse Boy screening were donated to The Horse Boy Foundation.
A big thanks to our partner, The Raven Film Center and our wine sponsor, Medlock Ames Winery!
