Sacramento’s Premier Local Film Event Celebrates Fifth Year
A Place Called Sacramento 2004

October 2nd: 2PM Premiere Presentation
October 3rd: 2pm Encore

Each year Access Sacramento hosts the local film celebration, A Place Called Sacramento (PCS). PCS is Sacramento’s ORIGINAL local film making exhibition consisting of ten new films commissioned by Access Sacramento each year. Over the years, the program has gained so much in popularity that it has encouraged many new film artists and even other film contests. All funds go to support non-profit, non-commercial community media and PCS is the annual fundraising event for Access Sacramento, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.

Since its inception, A Place Called Sacramento (PCS) has initiated the creation of nearly 50 digitally produced short films that speak to the very heart and character of our region. These efforts have encouraged and supported the growth of digital film production in our community and provided a classic venue to enjoy this unique community building, family-friendly event. This year the BIG screen at the Crest Theater will see 10 new films including some truly original works like The Adventures of Sac Man and Yard Sale (see list below).

This historic program is gearing up for our 2004 launch at the beautiful Crest Theater (1010 K street), Saturday October 2nd.
