The NBAFF 2017 Weekend Experience will take place on October 6th, 7th and 8th
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 and screen 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, Coworking and business development center and the second venue is the Clocktower Building, a former armory site.
Storytellers from all around the globe are being invited to submit their short (less than twenty minutes) films to this 2017 weekend experience!
