ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Held August 1st to 4th, 2018, Oceanside International Film Festival kicks off a season of film festivals, which are conducted annually in San Diego county and usually continue through the Fall. OIFF is an opportunity for independent filmmakers to have their work screened and judged. It also gives the film buffs a jump-start chance for viewing local and international films at a place in Southern California known for its rich history, beautiful beaches, and artistic freedom. Film industry guests and audience members alike will appreciate the ocean-infused atmosphere surrounding the city, where the festival is held. Located in the most Northern part of San Diego county and within a short drive from Los Angeles and Orange counties, Oceanside offers miles of sandy beaches ideal for sun-worshiping and surfing. Between screenings, movie aficionados will be able to visit the famous bungalow house featured in “Top Gun” (starring Tom Cruise), California Surf Museum, or the longest wooden pier on the western United States coastline – all within walking distance from OIFF-2016. Oceanside is also home to a harbor bustling with restaurants and entertainment, and to the historic Mission San Luis Rey, the largest building in California when completed in 1700’s and the most prosperous of the state’s 21 missions, thus earning the name “King of the Missions”.

Oceanside International Film Festival is a public event conceived and once again underwritten by Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation, which is OIFF’s parent entity and 501c3 non-profit organization (www.ocaf.info ). This year will be the 27th year OCAF has brought quality artistic, visual, performance, and musical arts to Oceanside and the surrounding communities. The organizational committee of OIFF is resolved to make the 2017 event a success with strong industry experience of its members and fun screening techniques to ensure an enjoyable experience for all.

Among the highlights of the festival will be its traditional red-carpet opening gala, reception of industry artists and closing ceremonies with Best-In-The-Category Awards, Best Picture Trophy, and Audience Choice Awards.
