Competition Feature Films and Competition Shorts

All films in the competition series are eligible to win both audience and judge’s awards.  They have been selected from over 3000 entries by our panel of screeners and verified by our judging committee. Films are ticketed events and any Festival Pass provides access.

Spotlight Films

The Festival’s Steering Committee, with help from the screening and judging team, selects a variety of films to showcase. These films deal with topics that go beyond the romantic theme of the Festival, but ultimately bring to Cambria intriguing films that deal touch on love in its broadest sense. Films are ticketed events and any Festival Pass provides access.

Community Films

A small number of films have been selected to provide free screenings to anyone in the community. Such films are not ticketed, and access is provided entirely on a first-come, first-served basis.
