Catalina Film Festival

International Film Festival.

About

Through our screenings, industry panels and networking events, the festival attendees are exposed to the Hollywood experience through a wide spectrum of film, industry meetings and interactions. Separate from our main film competitions, and along with our beneficiary the Catalina Island Conservancy, we also have special honors for filmmakers dedicated to conservation who are nurturing their goal of protecting, restoring, and experiencing the power of nature.

Our festival mission is designed to help create a platform for the filmmakers to be seen, but more importantly, to help get them the industry exposure they will need to help sustain their craft for many years to come.

Awards

Crystal Trophies go to our top winners for each category with various Sponsored Festival prizes (prizes and values vary from year to year and aren't usually secured until closer to the event). The dollar value varies and usually comes in the form of industry packages, services, and gifts. Winners are never promised to receive prizes other than our top prize crystal trophies or anything specifically stated within that category, any additional prizes depend on our sponsors' generosity. Prizes differ each year and are usually secured closer to the festival dates. Past prizes have valued over $50,000 in post-production packages, filmmaker software, scholarships, sponsored goods, and more... We do not give cash prizes.
