We are very excited to announce the 22nd Annual SLO International Film Festival lineup! We have a great mix of amazing new movies, exciting filmmakers and special guests attending, and a handful of great old classics too! Listings are still being updated but we didn’t want to keep you waiting any longer! Thanks so much to all our very generous sponsors for all their support this year! We can’t do this without you. And thank you to our 2016 Screening Panel who helped us put together this excellent program of “official selections” in the George Sidney Independent Film category.
Our Festival Headquarters opens this coming Monday, February 22nd. We’ll have reduced hours until the Festival begins, but please do stop by during those hours to purchase tickets, pick up passes and Festival Guides. We’re located at 1007 Monterey St. right next to Mo’s BBQ! See our home page for HQ hours.
Lots of Special Event tickets are on sale, as well as a variety of Festival Passes. This year’s Movie Mogul Pass is more valuable than ever too. It includes full access to the new Hollywood & Vines Festival Tent that will be located right behind the Fremont Theatre. Day and night, this hospitality area, sponsored by the City of San Luis Obispo, will host filmmakers, journalists, sponsors and Mogul pass holders and we’ll be offering food, wine, beer and other goodies compliments of a variety of Central Coast businesses.
And that’s not all! The Mogul Pass will also come with a wine tasting pass, good for complimentary tastings at some of the Central Coast’s best wineries! Click here for a listing!
Lastly, the Mogul Pass will give you access to many of the festival films you might have not been able to see during the festival! We’ll give you an access code to FilmFestTV where you’ll be able to catch up on great indie films, shorts and full-length.
All the passes are good value, and will give priority access to screenings…in other words, you’ll get in before individual ticket holders. It’s best to get to the theatre about 30 minutes before showtime, but pass holders do have priority until up to 15 minutes before the movies begin.
There’s more news coming soon! Have fun planning your Fest and we’ll see you at the movies!
