CARMEL ART & FILM FESTIVAL
OCTOBER 6–10, 2010
www.CarmelArtAndFilm.com

Five days in October... Celebrating the spirit of independent film... The bold soul of art and artists… The new sounds for generations... And the vision of creative photography.

Five, jam-packed days of independent film, presented in a half dozen unique venues including the world famous Carmel Beach, a two-day outdoor fine art fair, a photography exhibition, tech expo, music café, lectures, gallery art openings, and an art auction round out the artistic adventure, which is then wrapped in a finely spun cocoon of fine wines and inventive cuisine from a region widely recognized for both.

The Carmel Art & Film Festival will transform Carmel-by-the-Sea into a compelling venue October 6–10, kicking off with an opening night reception and concert at the Sunset Center. Musicians will play in outdoor courtyards, galleries will host receptions, and the two-day show in a downtown park will afford painters and sculptors a unique opportunity to display and sell their creations. A photography exhibition in a nearby gallery will include the works of 50 artists.

John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival for 19 years, signed on last year as the director of the Carmel Art and Film Festival. Founder, Tom Burns, "couldn't be more thrilled" that Cooper has joined the ranks of the board that includes other heavy hitters in the film industry such as Stone Phillips and Dina Eastwood.
