Happy New Year from all of us at the SLO Film Fest! We hope you’ve been enjoying your holidays and have seen lots of good movies too. We’re busy watching a record number of submissions to our three film competitions, and are working on a pretty awesome program for our 25th Anniversary Festival! Details will be unveiled in the coming months.
You have until midnight on Monday to order your festival passes at a discount so get on it if you haven’t already! From March 12 to 17, we’ll be screening movies on nine theatre screens in downtown SLO, plus a few more in neighboring towns, including the Park Cinemas in Paso Robles and the Bay Theatre in Morro Bay. For info and to order passes, click here!
We’re also very excited to add a brand new movie venue near the airport – SLO Brew’s ROCK! They have a beautiful state-of-the-art concert/movie venue right next to the bar/restaurant that will become a busy festival theatre for several days during the upcoming festival. It’s an all-ages venue, with a fully stocked bar, 20 ft. screen, incredible acoustics and up to 220 seats! Oh, and then there’s the wide selection of craft beers, delicious food and comfortable outdoor patio. We’re excited to add this cool new venue and thank the owners and management for their support of the SLO Film Fest!
Lastly, I wanted to unveil another new video short that highlights the many talented Hollywood legends who have been honored with our annual King Vidor Award over the past 24 years, and the impressions they’ve made on some community members. Please take a couple of minutes to check it out!
Best wishes from the SLO Film Fest board and staff for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019! Looking forward to seeing you at the festival!
