Carter's Biz Cafes Hosts 2nd Annual North Bay Art & Film Festival October 6-8, 2017

Carter's Biz Café located at the Benicia Arsenal across from the Clock Tower to host Second Annual North Bay Art & Film Festival during October 6-8, 2017. A showcase of the unique character and talent of the San Francisco Bay Area will be featured.


Carter’s Biz Café is the proud host of the Second Annual North Bay Art & Film Festival (NBAFF) with its kickoff on Friday, October 6 through Sunday, October 7, 2017.  This Festival will showcase independent local, national and international short films along with the works of artisans from Northern California. The NBAFF is a campus-wide event that includes the Commanding Officers Quarters and the Benicia City Clock Tower, both historic sites in Benicia, California and is surrounded by the beautiful Carquinez Straits above the San Francisco Bay. Although held in Northern California, the North Bay Arts & Film Festival is an open event and the organizers expect a repeat of last year and receive submissions from throughout the nation and the world.   

"To date this year, we received films from all over the U.S. and we received entries from international filmmakers in China, Iran, Sweden, France, Spain, Greece and more," said Carter Rankin, CEO and Founder of Carter's Biz Cafes, a membership, co-working venture located in a 157-year old historical landmark known as the Commanding Officers Quarters. William K. Wesley, Festival Coordinator adds, "The combination of the works of independent filmmakers and local artisans makes this event very exciting. We once again expect dozens of artisans, artists and craftspeople from all over the Bay Area and Northern California."

Prolific filmmaker and NBAFF Judge Chairperson Jacalyn Evone states, "Last years' 1st Annual NBAFF exceeded our expectations. The quality of the films, the venue, and the ambiance were unparalleled. With such close proximity to San Francisco and Silicon Valley, we hosted an exceptionally talented, socially aware and technologically connected audience. We featured virtual reality hands-on demonstrations, as well as Q&A with movie makers about films and technology used to make them."

NBAFF is in and supports the Solano County community. Part of the net proceeds will be given to the Benicia Education Foundation whose mission is to support the seven Benicia public schools.
