As the Producer of the Chico Independent Film Festival (CIFF California), Kelly M. Desmore, it is an honor to bring opportunity and praise to Chico, my home.
Reviving the film experience in Chico and Butte County is what we are currently focused on for the coming years. Since 1905 we have had stunning movies made and numerous styles of films developed from our gorgeous home, Chico, Ca..
With over 35 personal years of shooting manual photography, video/film creation and editing, multimedia design and performance, my goal is to merge this current media, with our foundation of over 100 years of documentation of the arts.
CIFF California is the evolution of 4 other film festivals done throughout the years while filming, teaching and performing with varied artist’s mediums form 1993-2016.
Planting the seeds for a clear vision of Chico’s future of what has already been available to our community for years, is coming to fruition in the 2016-17 Season.
See you there,
Kelly M. Desmore – Producer/Senior Programmer of CIFF California.
