The La Costa Film Festival of Carlsbad beckons you to explore this idyllic coastal town known for its gorgeous beaches, exquisite local cuisine, and sports loving citizenry. It is home to sports industry giants such as Callaway, TaylorMade, and Cobra, as well as family focused attractions such as LEGOLAND, and ‘The Flower Fields.’ Another great choice is simply strolling through the Village of Carlsbad, and enjoying its quaint seaside ambiance. Our mantra is much like Carlsbad by the Sea; “casual yet intimate; relaxed yet unforgettable.”
The goal of the Festival itself is to combine the excitement, glamour, and experience of Hollywood with a setting that makes you feel like you’ve arrived at a destination vacation. It goes far beyond just watching movies when you listen to the passion of filmmakers as they discuss their creation, or mingle with the stars that brought it to life. Attending panels and parties will deepen the impact and appreciation you’ll have for their endeavors.
The Festival is an ideal platform to showcase the best of our area, which begins by joining us for the Opening Night Gala -‘Taste of North County,’ featuring fabulous cuisine from area restaurants, acclaimed local craft beers, boutique wines, and all complemented by live musical entertainment. Continue your pleasure with the Friday Night Bash, or the Saturday Evening Awards Soiree.
