Soak up a charming mix of white-sand beaches, a quaint, European-inspired downtown and renowned restaurants while taking a critic’s view of films from studios around the world premiering at the Carmel International Film Festival. In this engaging and educational festival experience, view several films in diverse categories ranging from narrative features to animation and discuss them with local film experts in seminar-style classroom sessions. Outside the screening room, experience the best of this world-famous seaside destination with lodgings in sunny, bucolic Carmel Valley and expert insights into the natural history of the region.


Highlights

• Enjoy screenings of seven different films carefully chosen by local cinema experts, who enhance your viewing with scholarly analysis and discussion.
• Learn from an expert about the natural history of the Carmel area, including its marine ecology and the unique climate responsible for its rustic ranches and acclaimed wineries.
• Meet and ask questions of John Steinbeck, faithfully portrayed by a living-history interpreter, and gain historical perspectives on the region his writings so famously described.
