Santa Catalina Film Festival

The SANTA CATALINA FILM FESTIVAL is a film festival that not only celebrates the art and entertainment of film in all of its forms, but also Santa Catalina Island in all of its rich history, glory, and beauty.

Through screenings and associated events, the festival aims to present a wide spectrum of filmmaking - feature films, documentaries, screenplays, animation, short films, experimental, student work, big budget, micro-budget, trailers and soon…

The SANTA CATALINA FILM FESTIVAL awards mainstream films in various categories, but the Isla Earth Award, for the Conservation Series, is presented by the Catalina Island Conservancy, our beneficiary, honoring filmmakers that have their similar mission in protecting, educating and promoting the power of nature.

The SANTA CATALINA FILM FESTIVAL brings film enthusiasts and filmmakers together to better enjoy the art and fun of filmmaking, but also to enjoy the beauty and hospitality of Santa Catalina Island.

The Film Festival offers our guests the opportunity to learn, grow and exhibit films within the unique and romantic setting of Los Angeles County’s Pacific treasure. The festival will also offer attendees quality films that will entertain, educate, and inspire their own interests. Film professionals, and the interested public, will have the opportunity to gain industry knowledge through festival activities,
education centers, and seminars with our guest speakers.

The SANTA CATALINA FILM FESTIVAL is about the filmmakers’ opportunity to entertain, educate and inspire their audience, just like the island itself.
