It’s not the SLO Film Fest without FILM, WINE AND FUN! This year we have two wine related films that are both well worth catching at some point during the March 12-17 Festival.
TIN CITY – World Premiere
Sponsored by XPressFill, Taste! and Krush 92.5
In the heart of Paso Robles Wine Country there is a concentrated village – a wine region within a wine region – populated by rebellious, creative winemakers, brew and cider masters and distillers working at the razor’s edge of their craft. Upstarts and industry veterans work side by side to thrive together and make history. Welcome to Tin City, an industrial epicurean playground that has grown into a mecca for food and wine travelers from around the world. Paso Robles filmmaker Dina Mande profiles the creative souls who introduce us to their unique world of boutique wine, cider and craft beer. 80 min. USA
Director/Writer/Producer: Dina Mande

Receptions sponsored by JUSTIN Winery & Downtown Wineries of Paso Robles
Late in the evening of Sunday, Oct. 8th, 2017, a series of wildfires ignited Northern California’s beloved wine country. Shocked residents who lost homes and businesses, first responders, chefs and winemakers share their harrowing accounts while the fallen community begins to rebuild. On Nov. 21, one very long table was set in a vineyard, on the Napa-Sonoma border, to bring together 500 community members, first responders and fire victims for a harvest lunch and fundraiser, spearheaded by “Uncrushable” director, Chef Tyler Florence, event coordinators and caterers. The spirit of community and healing is palpable in this inspiring story of loss and recovery. 70 min. USA
Director: Tyler Florence
Producers: Amanda Gold and Natalie Cain
Meet Tyler Florence in San Luis Obispo at a reception before the 2pm screening at the Fremont Theatre, hosted by The Downtown Wineries of Paso Robles. Located in the historic downtown area, they are a microcosm of the various AVAs of Paso. Mostly family-owned, the wineries take pride not only in the small batch wines they make but also in their hospitality.
Wine tasting is included in the price of the movie ticket.
