The high school’s terrific media arts program gets a great deal of its funding from the Sonoma International Film Festival. SIFF is having its major annual fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 6 to 10 p.m. Not only are student films screened to a standing-room-only audience at the April festival each year, these film students are getting into colleges that specialize in filmmaking, graduating and getting jobs in the industry. The community is invited to come dressed in James Bond 007 garb or cocktail attire for a night of casino games, raffles, wine and food at Buena Vista Winery. Tickets are $150 and can be purchased at <a href="http://sonomafilmfest.org">sonomafilmfest.org</a>.
