A world-class destination presents a world-class celebration for cinematic art! 2023 will mark the 8th season of Coronado Island Film Festival (CIFF)! We invite filmmakers from across the globe to a festival that is at once both cosmopolitan and intimate, a rare combination that allows for an indelible experience that lasts long after the lights go up.

Strong industry networking is a hallmark of our festival as is the red carpet hospitality that we roll out for our accepted filmmakers. 

Coronado Island film Festival is a lifestyle festival that uses film to elevate and foster conversations on local and global issues that impact our daily lives, we also love to be entertained and laugh out loud. 

Community is our strength not just a buzz word.  It is an ideal space we strive to create- bringing a sense of belonging, creativity, inspiration and cultural common denominators that connect us and change us. There is nothing more powerful than giving a platform to visionaries, trailblazers, innovators, creative voices, and artistic talent.
