Although held in Northern California, the North Bay Arts & Film Festival is an open event and the organizers expect submissions from throughout the nation. You can check out for the “buzz” on submitting films to the festival!

Due to 2016’s NBAFF’s overwhelming success, an additional venue on the historical campus, the Clock Tower Building (seats 700) has been added for this one of a kind weekend experience.

Join the fun and enjoy a unique showcase of talent at the 157 year old park like campus along with enough FREE PARKING for well over three hundred cars!

The waterfront town of Benicia and the North Bay are extremely creative communities and the beauty, ambiance and historical significance of the area make it a wonderful location to spend your fun-filled weekend!




A class act for such a young festival. Excellent hospitality and well presented. Issues were quickly resolved and volunteers were at your service. As a filmmaker I was pleasantly surprised at the caliber and high quality of films screened. The workshops were good and complimented the festival well. I would like to have seen a component that offered filmmakers an organized networking session. Overall, I was satisfied.
