Sebastopol, California (Pop. 7,379)
March 30-April 1, 2012

Rolling hills of vineyards and apple orchards dot the landscape surrounding this West Sonoma County doc-only festival that highlights films about Latino subjects. And, oh yeah, Wine Road, one of the country’s biggest coalition of wineries, is just around the corner. It’s one of the lengthiest festivals on our list, giving you multiple chances to catch a screening, in case you got distracted by a sampling of Pinot.

When to submit: By early September
