Tonight’s Opening Night and we kick off with a Mardi Gras style party that y’all have never seen the likes of! And that’s just the beginning as we then head into a busy five days of Film, Wine, Beer and Fun!
And there’s truly something for everyone! Do you love dogs? Then don’t miss the World Premiere of THE BUDDY SYSTEM with an adorable specially- trained Golden Retriever in attendance (if they can get out of the East Coast storm in time!) We also have a short film at Surf Nite in SLO about surfing dogs…20 cute pups of all sizes on one surf board!!
How about fun stories about old Hollywood? Don’t miss our Tribute to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher tomorrow night at the Fremont Theatre. Todd Fisher is bringing along some costumes from “Singin’ in the Rain” too! How cool is that? There’s also THE LOST CITY OF CECIL B. DEMILLE and JOHN AVILDSEN: King of the Underdogs playing throughout the festival, as well as THE UNSINKABLE MOLLY BROWN at the Octagon Barn on Thursday night. There are still tickets available to that fun event!
I could go on….but gotta run! It’s Opening Night and there are still a thousand and one details to take care of before 5:30!
See you at the Festival! Laissez bonne temps roulez!
