Category Rules

The Central Coast Filmmakers Showcase features locally produced films that might not otherwise have the opportunity to be publicly screened in San Luis Obispo.

Filmmakers with films that were produced, directed or written by residents of San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara or Monterey counties are invited to submit their films for possible inclusion in the Central Coast Filmmakers Showcase. The entry fee is discounted. Any films submitted in this category that are not eligible will not be considered.

The same film cannot be entered in both competitions however. A separate set of jurists will choose a selection of films to be screened as "local" films. If the filmmaker decides to submit the "local" film to the George Sidney category (open to filmmakers worldwide), it will be judged by the SLO Film Fest Programming Committee along with all other entries from around the world and will not be considered for the CCFS competition.
