<strong>Where the birds are:</strong> Friday, the 2014 Hitchcock Film Festival kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a gala at the Bodega Harbour Yacht Club (565 Smith Brothers Road). In addition to a screening of "The Birds," the event includes a red carpet flanked by paparazzi, live music, appetizers, cocktails, a photo booth and popcorn.

Cost is $50 per person, and tickets are available at Gourmet au Bay, Candy and Kites, Bodega Bay Veterinary Hospital and brownpapertickets.com.

Black tie is optional but, really, isn't that a lot of the point?

On Saturday, there will be three screenings at the Bodega Bay Grange (1370 Bodega Ave.). At noon, it's "The Birds;" "Shadow of a Doubt" shows at 3:30 p.m. and the evening is capped off with "Psycho" at 7 p.m.

Admission is $10 per movie or $25 for all three. Children under 12 pay $5, so, go ahead, take the kiddies to "Psycho."

Tickets are available at <a href="http://brownpapertickets.com">brownpapertickets.com</a>.

If scheduled events do not sell out, a few tickets will be available at the door.

Proceeds benefit local educational programs, including Bodega Bay Elementary, Pastures Preschool and Tomales Bay Elementary.

<strong>Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival:</strong> If for some reason Sebastopol's film festival isn't on your radar screen, there is still time to enjoy it. It kicked off on Thursday and continues through Sunday, March 29.
