Carmel International Film Festival

From the Filmmakers’ Reception to the VIP Cocktail Parties, and everything in between, there is something for everyone at the Carmel International Film Festival. Back by popular demand this year is the Filmmakers’ Beach Dinner. Filmmakers and guests enjoy the beautiful Carmel beach and some phenomenal food and beverages. The Filmmakers’ Beach Dinner is an unforgettable, quintessential festival experience.

We are also incredibly excited about the return of our Music Café, presented by Talking Animals Music, curated by Mark Governor, featuring live performances by young singer/songwriters. We’ve expanded our creation of last year’s Music Café. Check out our events page for all of the details.
