Cambria Film Festival

February 8, 2023 - February 12, 2023
Cambria Center for the Arts

Welcome to year six of a Film Festival dedicated to romance, romantic comedy and the complexities of love. We’re live again—ready to reconnect with the stories that move us.

 For 2023, check out these exciting new elements:

  • Festival Hospitality Tent. A special tent at the Cambria Center for the Arts provides a spot to grab a complimentary coffee or soda between movies, sit a moment, talk to other Festival goers,or check out filmed comments by filmmakers.
  • A new venue—the Gallery Theatre. This pop-up space at the Cambria Center for the Arts is designed as a more casual environment for movie viewing. Feel free to bring in food or drink to this space.
  • Another new venue—special screenings at the Moonstone Cellars Club Member Lounge. Here we showcase some great films that aren’t in our competition but which we think you will find fun and rewarding . . . and maybe enjoy a glass of wine.
  • An added party. Check out our Filmmaker Reception on Friday night at the Cambria Memorial Veterans Hall. We’re encouraging our filmmakers to enjoy the whole weekend with us, as we salute their work at this event. 

In short, the Cambria Film Festival gives you many ways to enjoy some of the world’s best films in one of the world’s most scenic spots.

In addition to these special events, the competition films will be screened twice during the four days of the Festival. Plus there will be filmmaker talks added to the schedule.

Memories of Summer Nights

On August 10, we held our first ever outdoor movie screening on the grounds of the Stolo Winery with a special screening of Moonstruck.  

Here are some pictures of that night.


As a way to connect to the community and support emerging filmmakers, the Film Branch awards each year a grant of up to $2500 to one or more independent filmmakers. Like our festival, this grant promotes films about romance, romantic comedies and the complexities of love. For more details, visit
