Give the Gift of Independent Film!

The holidays are quickly approaching, and what’s better than giving your loved one the gift of independent film? Buy a gift card that can go towards a pass or tickets to our 2021 film festival! 

The 27th Annual San Luis Obispo International Film Festival will be here soon and it will be one of our most unique Festivals ever — a predominantly virtual experience with the possibility of a few special in-person events (in compliance with state guidelines.)

In addition to first-class films and engaging storytelling, we plan to offer an interactive social hub, behind-the-scenes panels, watch at home kits, virtual audience award voting, filmmaker Q&As and more. The Festival will also continue to honor industry professionals with our annual awards. We can’t wait to show you how we are shining a light on the joy of cinema. 

Thank you for joining us for our virtual event! Did you miss our Vinyl Nation panel discussion? You can now view the post-film discussion online! Hosted by Jim Dee (Owner of the Palm Theater) with record store owners Malik Miko Thorne (A Satellite of Love), Manuel Barba (Traffic Records), filmmakers Christopher Boone & Kevin Smokler and special guest Kristy Duncan!

You can also help the festival by donating! You can send a check via mail directly to P.O. Box 1449, San Luis Obispo, CA 93406 or email info@slofilmfest.org. You can also donate directly by visiting hereIf you donate before year-end, you could reap potential tax savings due to the CARES Act!
