Film Arts


The CCA Film Arts program explores the magic on and behind the screens.  The program is anchored by our annual Cambria Film Festival, held in February with a focus on romance, romantic comedy and the complexities of love. Throughout the year we offer film screenings, lectures and events on the art of film.


Each February, we host an international competition film festival focused on romance, romantic comedies, and the complexities of love. Now planning for our fifth year, the Festival attracts independent short and feature-length films from around the world.  Adding to the Festival experience, we host parties, filmmaker discussion panels and special events that make the four days of film truly exceptional. 

The next Festival is scheduled for February 8-12, 2023 

More information is available on the Festival website:


The Cambria Film Festival and other film programs are managed by our volunteer steering committee, along with volunteers from around the community who help to select the films, staff the box office, greet guests, host parties and more! Check out the volunteer opportunities.
