background closer notice Due to the public health and safety concerns posed by COVID-19 we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 15th Annual Mendocino Film Festival until next year, June 3-6, 2021. MFF is committed to being a part of the solution to keep our community, audiences, and artists safe and is abiding by the current recommendations from state and city health officials.

The festival team still wants to share some of the amazing films that were curated for the 2020 festival, so stay tuned for updates on our website and Facebook page. We look forward to continuing our Classic Film Series and scheduling special screenings and events with our local partners later in the year. .

Classic Film Series

The Classic Film Series is temporarily on hold until we receive guidance from the state regarding large public gatherings. As soon as we receive news that we can set dates for future films we will post updates on our website and on Facebook. Coast Cinemas has offered to allow room on their schedule for more classic film screenings and thus enable us to show a classic film nearly every month. Thanks to your input on a recent film poll that we circulated at screenings and at local business’ we have selected a wide range of true classics. We hope to see you at the movies soon – meanwhile stay safe.
