A note from the Festival Director

I am a filmmaker and a lover of agriculture.  I am based out of Los Angeles and Vacaville, CA.  "The Ag & Art Film Festival" is my attempt to mash together two of my loves!  Let's celebrate film and art and agriculture, all three things that feed our souls, together in the cute Northern Californian agriculture town of Vacaville, California.  Have a question?  Drop me a line!  I look forward to celebrating Ag & Art (and film) with you!
