The Sonoma Valley Film Festival is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lives. It is one of the more significant events where cinema and culture meet without all the nasty politics and corruption of Hollywood – some might argue it is THE event. However, if for whatever reason, you just can’t make it, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t bring the film festival home.
Big name cable providers, you know, like the ones that give you Directv NFL Sunday Ticket, are also known for their diversity when it comes to movie channels. You get the classics, you get the hot new releases and, of course, you get the indie productions.
And, in many ways, having the film festival in your home is a lot better because it gives you the opportunity to share some of these unsung classics with your community. Instead of having the neighbors come over to watch a show or The Grey, you can have an indie film night where you’re free to discuss the creativity and imagination of these thought-provoking films.
So don’t sweat it if you can’t make it to the big name film festivals. You have other choices when it comes to getting your indie fix.
