SLO FILM FESTIVAL: APRIL 25-30 2024 ENCORE MAY 1-5

CLOSING NIGHT: THELMA

Supported by KVEC News Talk 920 AM 96.5 FM

The 30th annual SLO Film Festival will wrap up with an Award Ceremony for both our Juried Awards and Audience Award voted on throughout the festival, alongside a showing of THELMA.

We’re privileged to present this Sundance favorite, marking the feature directorial debut of Josh Margloin. Inspired by his own grandmother’s real-life experiences, the film stars June Squibb as Thelma Post, a victim of a phone scam who mails thousands of dollars to help her jailed grandson, only to discover he”s not actually in jail. Determined to reclaim her money, Thelma embarks on a journey, unsupported by her daughter and son-in-law (Parker Posey and Clark Gregg) but aided by a longtime family friend, played by Shaft legend Richard Roundtree in his final onscreen performance. This intergenerational tale reminds us to never underestimate age and that it’s never too late for an adventure.
