The Oceanside International Film Festival (OIFF) will be held August 3rd - August 10th 2014. OIFF, which was established in 2009, gives independent filmmakers an opportunity to showcase their work on the big screen and have it judged. Over 70 independent films will be featured this year and include films produced in countries as far away as India and Australia. Film buffs and enthusiasts will enjoy the variety of films, from Sci-Fi, comedies, animation and feature films to documentaries exploring surf culture and the military.
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 downtown Oceanside within walking distance from OIFF-2014. 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”.
Films will be shown at Star Theatre and the Sunshine Brooks Theatre, 217 North Coast Highway. This is a public event. Festival admission is $10-$50; military rate $10 for one day; $35 for festival pass.
