The Watsonville Film Festival is a diverse, community, family and youth oriented event.

We are looking for films that are inspiring, entertaining, that reflect our multi-cultural region, and our connections to the global society in which we live.

Filmmakers living in the Central Coast region - or have films that are produced in, or connected to, our area - are strongly encouraged to submit their works.

Films will be reviewed for selection by the festival programming committee, and if accepted, filmmakers will be notified in January 2016.

The Watsonville Film Festival will take place MARCH 3-6, 2016.
Accepted filmmakers are encouraged to attend; all of our screenings include Q&A time for filmmaker/audience engagement. We also host year-round screenings, so there is the possibility that your film may be accepted to screen at a stand-alone event.
