The La Costa Film Festival aspires to deliver a new cultural experience to our community, through a greater appreciation of the art of film making. We will showcase the best examples of quality documentaries, feature narratives and thought-provoking shorts. Each will be presented in a variety of exciting local venues, including Carlsbad's Cinepolis, The Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium at the Dove Library and right here at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

Walk the red carpet at our Opening Night Gala, then watch the premiere screening under a starlit sky on the grounds of Omni La Costa Resort & Spa. Throughout the festival, you'll have multiple opportunities to meet and mingle with filmmakers and learn more about their craft. In addition, we'll delight you with world renowned local cuisine, local wineries releases a dn a bevvy of award-winning craft brews. Live music, BLISS lights display and the incredible weather and scenery of the resort guarantee an unforgettable event. A special fundraiser event on Friday will complete the experience by raising much-needed funds for our local charity, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad.

The La Costa film festival is operated through La Costa Dreams, Inc. (2013), which is a Carlsbad non-profit public benefit organization, with all net proceeds going directly to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad.

"This was our third visit to La Costa, and it did not disappoint. I think it is terrific the way they cater to romantic couples and families alike. I love it here, and cannot wait until we have the opportunity to return. The staff is terrifically friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautiful, the activities are really fun, and the food is good!"
