Raffle Benefits

The San Luis Obispo International Film Festival was founded in 1993 by Mary Harris, Cathy Peacock, Jim Dee, Patty Dee and Lee Cogan. Originally a week-long celebration of classic films, it included 32 screenings and a tribute to film director, George Sidney. He won the King Vidor Award for Excellence in Filmmaking that year and began the annual tradition of awarding a successful motion picture industry personality with the prestigious award on the stage of the beautiful Fremont Theatre in downtown San Luis Obispo.

Mary Harris continued to spearhead the festival for the next nine years, growing it to include the George Sidney Independent Film Competition which brought exciting, independent cinema to San Luis Obispo helping to promote independent filmmaking and young up-and-coming talent. She also added filmmaking seminars to the festival which attracted a wide variety of filmmaking professionals from nearby Hollywood and all over the country.

The San Luis Obispo International Film Festival continues to grow and thrive as an oasis for independent filmmakers to screen their films and have face to face contact with enthusiastic audiences in talk-back sessions and workshops.
