The San Luis Obispo International Film festival wrapped up yesterday. People from all over the world came out  to mingle with Hollywood talent and support the fine art of film.

This year the festival presented a broad range of creative works including documentaries and short films created by students and Central Coast filmmakers at theaters across the county.

During the festival’s highlighted award show at the Fremont over the weekend, the SLOIFF board presented winners from the festival with the festival-wide George Sidney awards.
