The three Festival Pass options currently on sale at early bird prices are:

The all-access festival pass is $119, and the regular price is $149. Offers access to all films, all Gala night events and parties, all filmmaker talks and a complimentary pass to the post-festival encore streaming of the shorts program.

The film pass is $59, and the regular price is $79. Offers access to all films and talks, as well a complimentary virtual pass, but does not include the three Gala night events.

Filmmaker and Allan Hancock College instructor Robin Smith will debut her new documentary film Something to Crow About at the Cambria Film Festival on Feb. 11.

Smith’s new film tells the story of the Cambria Scarecrow Festival, a 14-year-old event where local artists work to create hundreds of scarecrows, which are then staged in downtown Cambria and San Simeon each October.
