The Coronado Island Film Festival is hosting its fifth festival Nov. 11-15.
Due to the pandemic, the majority of the festival has gone virtual but organizers have not lost their commitment to celebrate the magic of film and to spotlight the gifted filmmakers who have poured out their creativity, passion and hearts for all to view and enjoy.
The City continues to sponsor the film festival through its Community Grant Program. The festival will host a safe and socially distanced in-person event on Thursday, Nov. 12, when the festival heads to the South Bay Drive-in for the official 2020 Opening Night feature from Searchlight Pictures “Nomadland.” Winner of the Golden Lion Award at the Venice Film Festival, it continues to draw critical acclaim. Opening Night at the South Bay Drive-in one-vehicle entry is $100 and includes a snack package.
An all-access pass is $125. There are several other options. For more information or to purchase a pass, visit https://coronadofilmfest.com/#elevent.
