Lights. Camera. Action! The red carpet was rolled out for guests and stars at The La Costa Film Festival, October 13-16, at the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa. Film festivals are popping up all around the globe, from Cannes to Sundance…now we have one in our own backyard! Receiving early festival attention can be vital to getting on the awards circuit radar and ultimately earning major accolades like Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Independent Spirit Awards.
Throughout the 4-day festival, there were film screenings that were followed by Q&A sessions with the cast and crew. A special screening celebrated the 30-year anniversary of Top Gun in 3D at Cinepolis, along with numerous short film competitions. Friday guests enjoyed a night ‘Under the Stars’ with a screening of The Longest Journey and a Q&A with Chris Noth, from Sex and the City and Law and Order. Noth received the ‘Shining Star Award’ and talked about his experience working on The Longest Journey as well as a possibility of Sex and the City 3!
The Opening ‘Sip and Savor ‘Gala was a huge success where guests got the chance to mingle, enjoy small bites from local restaurants such as Gregorio’s and Green Dragon Tavern and Museum, and sip on libations from urban wineries, craft beers, and coffees from Leap Coffee.
An event that sparkled from beginning to end…not to be missed in 2017! LaCostaFilmFestival.org
