The 25 Under 25 Film Fest is a two-day film festival in San Luis Obispo that is dedicated to giving young California filmmakers a platform to show their work. The festival will highlight filmmakers under the age of 25 that are making films less than 25 minutes long. We aim to produce an environment that encourages youth art, innovative ideas, and lasting connections between young filmmakers. The filmmakers all will be staying together in log cabins at a local beachside campground, fostering an environment full of meaningful connections and beautiful views.
