Though there are few reviews of the Sacramento Film & Music Festival, it has received extensive press in previous years, including two features in the Sacramento News & Review, as well as coverage from the Capitol Weekly and the Sacramento Movie Examiner.
- Festival founder Nathan Schemel, for instance, has figured out how to be gracious and tenacious at once. “I would call people in our second year,” he recalled recently, “and they would not call back and slam the door in my face or whatever. Now they see we’re not going away. It’s gratifying to me to see more support." – Jonathan Kiefer, Sacramento News & Review
