- Non-Profit Organizations
La Costa Dreams, Inc. – is the 501(c)3 public benefit corporation that operates the La Costa Film Festival.
Fun!... Glamorous!... Intimate! An international and world class film festival right here in your back yard. These are all words that describe a unique cultural experience not to be missed - the La Costa Film Festival, now entering its fourth year. It didn’t happen by accident, but was surely predestined for this area blessed with natural beauty and an innate appreciation for the arts. The Festival also draws upon the mystique and storied Hollywood connections of the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, which has served as the Festival’s host from the beginning. Co-founders Michael and Ruby Callihan soon discovered that their vision for creating this legacy event would inspire over 150 equally passionate volunteers annually devoting over 10,000 hours towards its success.
The Festival is an irresistible combination of quality films, red carpet galas, amazing free panels, celebrities, and exciting special events. They’re all presented in a setting that epitomizes a world-class destination. We have honored stars like Andy Garcia, Ed Harris, Ron Shelton and John C. McGinley, who have all praised the experience. Filmmakers have already called the Festival, “the gold standard for treatment of filmmakers.”
Last year, over 4,000 fans were treated with forty-eight films, with five world premieres, and eighteen filmmaker Q&A’s.
Three amazing screening venues include under the stars on Center Court at the Omni Resort, Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas, and the Ruby G. Schulman Theater.
Hosted by the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, with venues at Cinepolis Luxury Cinemas-La Costa, and the Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium at the Dove Library in Carlsbad. Directions available on our website.
