Citizen Hearst premieres at the SLO Film Festival

The San Luis Obispo International Film Festival travelled up the coast to Hearst Castle Friday.

The night featured a screening of some newly found Hearst family home movies and a film about the 125-year history of the Hearst media empire in the private Hearst Castle Theater.

Filmmaker Leslie Iwerks was given the spotlight award before the screening of her movie, Citizen Hearst.

"I think what most people will be surprised with, when they see this film, is how much and how big the Hearst Corporation is and how they've been able to inspire and innovate media," said Iwerks.

The SLO Film Festival continues on the Central Coast through Sunday.
