The North Bay Art and Film Festival (NBAFF) is an annual three day event showcasing independent films and select artisans from Northern California. The event was created by independent filmmakers with the sole purpose to showcase new and upcoming talent.
The Festival will be held in the artistic waterfront town of Benicia, California in the historical Arsenal district, where there is a campus comprised of two former military venues. The first venue is the Commanding Officer’s Quarters, now home to Carter’s Biz Cafes, a cutting-edge, co-working and business development center. The second venue is the Clock Tower Building, a former armory site.
ONERE uses magical realism to explore themes of resilience, loss and self-acceptance. The film premiered at the Duluth-Superior Film Festival (USA) last summer and won awards at the Altered Aesthetics Film Festival (USA), Flyway Film Festival (USA), FEDAXV (Chile) and the top “Human Path Award” at the Pi Greco Zen Film Festival (Italy).
