Film Festivals Put California in the Spotlight

As home to both Hollywood and Silicon Valley, California can lay claim to being the most important center of popular entertainment in the world. But it gets even better. That’s because wherever you travel throughout the Golden State, you’ll find a passion for all things related to the creative sharing of arts and entertainment. It could be ballet or a Broadway musical in San Francisco’s Theater District. Catching a glimpse of a blockbuster film’s world premiere and red carpet gala complete with A-list celebrities in Hollywood. Or enjoying the astounding recreation of Renaissance art with live models in the plein air paradise of Laguna Beach. It all adds up to a rich palette of experiences that can be enjoyed on any level toofrom gritty, powerful street art in Oakland to the evocative symphonic music echoing through the elite confines of Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall. Come to California, and let us entertain and inspire you.
