We are pleased to announce the inaugural Cambria Film Festival was a rousing success! We are eagerly planning year two and are expanding upon the fest's fantastic beginning.

Our three main screening venues are within walking distance of each other, the town's shopping district, wineries, restaurants and hotels. Closing night awards gala was held at the Hearst Castle theater. Nearby, the coastal scenery is spectacular, offering un hikes and relaxing walks.

With our focus on matters of the heart, the festival looks for films that stir emotions and give audiences a chance to relate. We are excited to screen films of filmmaker's who are passionate about storytelling and look to share ideas about love that are universal.

Year two of the festival will take place in February 2019.
