Jefferson State Flixx Festival
The Rec, 11236 Hwy 3, Fort Jones, CA <map>

Nestled in the historic Scott Valley among the majesty of far Northern California’s Marble Mountains and Russian Wilderness, the Jefferson State Flixx Festival proudly presents the premier film festival of the “mythical” 51st State of Jefferson.

Representative of a region that has imagined its own independence as far back as the 1850’s and nearly succeeded in 1941, Flixxfest is committed to showcasing films and screenplays that capture some of the Jefferson State’s iconic values–rebellion, beauty, irreverence, landscape, vision and independence–in whatever storytelling form that takes.

More information and the full festival schedule and list of films is available on the Flixx Fest website.

SOFaM is a proud sponsor of Flixx Fest.
