SLO Film Fest: March 14-19, 2017

Quality Filmmaking, Red Carpet Events and VIP Treatment – All on the Central Coast!

The SLO Film Fest, formerly known as San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, believes in the sophistication of Golden Age cinema without the Hollywood hype. Dream Vacation Magazine recently named the SLO Film Fest as one of the “20 Best Under-the-Radar Film Festivals in 2016” for its genre variety, unique experiences like wine and movie pairings, and mission to prove that movies matter.

This annual 6-day event offers independent filmmaking and youth filmmaker programs in addition to screenings at a variety of unique locations along the Central Coast.

The SLO Film Fest will be centralized around Downtown San Luis Obispo with Fremont Theatre acting as the festival’s hub and featuring the ever-so popular Festival Tent, located at the corner of Osos and Monterey Street. Every afternoon and evening throughout the 6-day festival, SLO Film Fest will host cocktail mixers and after parties at their hospitality tent, where select ticket holders can indulge in local wines, food and live music. 

The SLO Film Fest kicks off with a unique Mardi Gras-themed Opening Night on Tuesday, March 14th at the Fremont Theatre and Festival Tent. On Wednesday, March 15th, the Central Coast Filmmaker Showcase takes place with seven festival screens showing films from San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and Monterey counties. In addition to Opening Night, enjoy two more red carpet events during the SLO Film Fest, including the iconic Surf Nite in SLO and the King Vidor Awards, where Josh Brolin will be awarded the prestigious award. Movie screenings and special events will follow throughout the week.
