Promoting Participation in the Moraga Community

CAnyon Bridge
That’s the theme for the 19th California Independent Film Festival (CAIFF) and the 6th hosted right here in Moraga and Orinda. This weeklong festival will run from September 8 – 14, will show films from 17 different countries, which were chosen from among the 1000 that were submitted for consideration. What makes this a real festival is that producers, actors, and screen writers of many of the films will come too, and often participate in Q&As after their film has been shown. Another “festival” feature is presenting many awards, such as for Best Actress, Best Feature Film, a Best Composer award, and a CAIFF 2016 Audience Award Favorite.

Film length varies from 3 minutes to 132 minutes in this wide collection of shorts, full-length feature films, and documentaries,. Topics are equally diverse - from a comedy about chocolate cake to a relational film about a grandmother and her granddaughter, to stories set in WW II Europe, to a suspenseful drama involving a kidnapping, to sexual shaming of women and girls.
