EXPERIENCE THE ISLAND MAGIC
We invite you once again to join us – the entire community of Coronado – Leonard and Alice Maltin, and makers and lovers of film from around the world – for a fun-filled fall holiday weekend on the storied island of Coronado. Come celebrate our enduring love affair with Hollywood that began when the historic Hotel del Coronado, our Presenting Sponsor, had barely opened its doors. That romance continues uninterrupted to this day.
The island itself will provide the magical setting for four jam-packed days of parties, panels, exhibits, workshops, Special Events, celebrities, live performances, new films, filmmakers, treasured classics, interesting venues, awards, tributes, blooming gardens, beach walks, sunsets, friendly locals, and shops and restaurants for every taste, along with a wide variety of films by filmmakers from every level of the craft, from emerging student to seasoned pro. As with last year, our closing night will be an outdoor screening of “Some Like It Hot,” starring Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis, where you will bundle up by a beach bonfire, dig your toes into the sand, and watch this timeless comedy from the very spot where it was filmed 59 years ago – on the “Del Beach.”
“The most important ingredient in a successful film festival is not the films, it’s the people putting it on and the enthusiasm they bring to it. Coronado has so much going for it – it has history, location, and, most importantly, a community that is very supportive and enthusiastic. Alice and I are so pleased to be a part of it.” -Leonard Maltin, renowned film critic and Festival Host and Honorary Jury President.
