Vincent van Gogh comes to life in Sedona

The Women of Sedona will celebrate Sedona Film Festival Month with a fun and whimsical program, “Vincent van Gogh Comes to Life in Sedona,” on Wednesday, February 9.

Director and writer Paul Davids will offer a behind-the-scenes look at his imaginative film “Starry Night.” This film screened at a previous Sedona Film Festival and won the People’s Choice Award at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

Interest in van Gogh’s life has recently intensified with multimedia exhibits touring cities around the world as well as an acclaimed film titled “Loving Vincent”. “Starry Night” is a fantasy about Vincent van Gogh returning to the present for 100 days, only to find that he was no failure and that his paintings, once considered worthless, are now worth billions. What Vincent does during those 100 days propels this fun and entertaining film. It is available through Amazon.

Paul Davids recently moved to Sedona from Los Angeles with his wife of 50 years, Hollace Davids. Together they produced several movies and TV shows and co-wrote six of the “Star Wars” sequel books for Lucasfilm. In addition to having directed more than 10 films, Davids is an accomplished magician. He will conclude his presentation with several magic tricks to dazzle and stun.

This animated program presented by the Sedona Women opens to the public on February 9 at the Creative Life Center at 333 Schnebly Hill Road. A meeting will begin at 9:30 a.m., followed by the program at 10 a.m. All participants must be fully masked and provide proof of vaccination.

This venue is subject to change based on local COVID activity. Check the Sedona Women website for pre-program updates. Visit or contact [email protected]
