2019 Filmmakers of Tomorrow Showcase

Presented by Union Bank, SLO County Board of Supervisors and Pacific Wildlife Care

Now in its 13thyear, this program continues to expand. This year we had a record-breaking 160 films submitted from all over the world, twice as many as last year! This showcase presents some of the finest films, 10 minutes or less, submitted in the elementary, middle and high school categories. Cash prizes, including an award from Pacific Wildlife Care, will be presented on Closing Night, Sunday, March 17 at the Fremont Theatre. This year’s competition was judged by program coordinators, Denise Dudley and Grace Tucker, with additional help from Nancy Ross Joynt, Hanna Eidson and Skye McLennan.
