The 10th Annual
SoCal Film Festival
Oct. 1 – Oct. 12, 2014
Celebrating the Storytellers of Tomorrow!
Wow! It’s really been ten years! It’s amazing to think that the festival started ten years ago. In that time, we have viewed and read more than 10,000 screenplays and movies and we have exhibited more than 1,000 official selections in the process. It has, so far, been an incredible journey. We have had the opportunity to work with many dedicated individuals on many different levels and from all walks of life. We have also had the unique experience of sharing the work of creative minds with stories to tell — that’s why we have a theme for our tenth year: Celebrating the Storytellers of Tomorrow!
Whatever your story is, share it with us. This is an open genre and open form festival. We have a movie and screenplay competition and we will have special events as a part of our decade long adventure! Join us for our 10-year extravaganza. Enter your movie or screenplay into the 2014 SoCal Film Festival. Come out in October and discover the storytellers of tomorrow.
The festival is held annually in Huntington Beach, a City visited by more than 11 million people every year.
Visit our MEDIA page for past highlights including interviews with Trent Opalach (District 9 Cinematographer), J.F. Lawton (Pretty Woman & Under Siege Screenwriter), Andy Dick (Actor/Comedian), Michael Welch (Twilight), Adam Lamberg (Lizzy Maguire), two-time Oscar nominated songwriter Carol Connors, as well as many others.
Huntington Beach is a city known for its long stretches of beach, and for hosting the largest professional surfing event in the world, the SoCal Film Festival celebrates the art and culture of film.
