OIFF ARCHIVES

CLICK ON THE YEAR TO UNFOLD ARCHIVED SCHEDULE

North County San Diego’s biggest film festival’s popularity is attributed to the following success formula since its very foundation in 2009: “Vacation-Feel / Kickback Attitude (near San Diego) + Profound Film Culture (close to Los Angeles) = Artistic Freedom. Yes, this is Oceanside!” And local, out-of-state, and international filmmakers have an opportunity to showcase their work in front of audiences hungry for independent cinema, submerge into its atmosphere, and experience the artistic freedom professed by the festival. The eight-day event will run in the same format and at the same venues as last year, screenings and celebrations taking place at two oldest theaters in town, Star Theatre and Sunshine Brooks Theatre. The festival showed 75 films on the big screen in 2015 and 60 in 2016.

His credits have included Super Bowl & U.S. Open commercials as well as the first North American advertisement for the HD Television. “Killer Tomatoes was indeed filmed partly in Oceanside, although I’m fairly certain the tomato field in the film is now a housing development. Such is progress.”, wrote DeBello.

2:00 pm to 3:30 pm – red carpet arrival of film industries stars and reception of filmmakers at Star Theatre, 402 North Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054.

6:00 pm – conclusion
“Patrol Base Jaker” (winner of two awards, OIFF-2013 Jury’s Award for Best Picture and OIFF-2013 Jury’s Award for Best Full Length Documentary) from Akron, Ohio, is a Guest Feature Film that opens Oceanside International Film Festival. This documentary is rated R for images of war. We all know about the negative sides of our troops being in Afghanistan. This documentary is about the positive sides. The film is about the US Marines, 1/5th of which are from Camp Pendleton, and the practice of counter-insurgency in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. The festival audience will once again witness up-close as Marines are engaged in a complex set of combat and stability operations tasks against the Taliban and in support of the Afghan Government. OIFF recommends this film for all people – either in the active military field or civilians – because it clearly answers the question of “why” the U.S. troops are fighting on a foreign land, as it portraits the many positive outcomes of our military forces’ presence there: “When in modern days a U.S. soldier finds himself / herself fighting in a different country and questions the reasons why – this film answers those questions and serves as a positive encouragement and perhaps even an inspiration for him/her.”

One of recipients of OIFF’s Lifetime Achievement Awards this year is an American film and television actor Saginaw Grant. Saginaw Grant is a Native American actor, traditional dancer, and motivational speaker, respected member of the Sac-n-Fox, Iowa, and Otoe-Missouria Nations. Grant has appeared in numerous films and television shows. He played Chief Big Bear in the 2013 film The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp. The same year, he was featured in Breaking Bad. He is also known for acting and representing his nation in other TV shows: The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1993), Baywatch (1997), My Name is Earl (2005), Saving Grace (2007), etc. OIFF also plans to have a Native American Indian element, in full regalia, on stage live at Star Theatre right before Saginaw Grant’s ceremony. Oceanside International Film Festival will honor hard-working Saginaw Grant with a special Lifetime Achievement Award for his contribution in film and television industry. The festival organizers are particularly thrilled to welcome Saginaw Grant in association with this place in San Diego known for profound Native American history – Oceanside is rich with history of Luiseno Band of Native American Indians based from around Mission San Luis Rey. Other film industry’s stars are expected to make a surprise appearance at the festival. One of them is Charles Kaufman, a writer and director, known as the creator of Mother’s Day (remake, 2010) and Mother’s Day (horror film, 1980). He was also a writer for The Bob Hope Show, Dennis the Menace TV series (1986), When Nature Calls (feature film, 1985), and many more. Additionally, his films have garnered numerous awards including gold medals at the London Film Festival, and Paris Film Festivals. Charles was the youngest professor of film and television at The School of Visual Arts in New York City. He will be on the red carpet of OIFF-2014 on August 3, 2014, and a presenter of a major award during Awards Ceremony at Oceanside International Film Festival on August 10, 2014.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS ABOUT THE EVENTS:
Note 1: “Working Class” (winner of OIFF-2012′s Best Picture, OIFF-2012 Jury′s Best Full Length Documentary, and OIFF-2012 Audience Choice Best Full Length Documentary) is made by a San Diego based director Jeffrey Durkin. It builds upon 13 years of art and friendship between San Francisco artist Mike Giant and San Diego artist Mike Maxwell. Loosely based on Charles Dickens book A Tale of Two Cities, the two Mikes discuss themes found in Dickens 1859 novel that are just as relevant today: religion, war, family, history, and art. Through those corresponding chapters, the audience gets an intimate look at how the world shapes the art they produce. At its core, Working Class is a buddy story that that delves into the lives of the artists while examining how the creative process intersects with friendship. Both Mikes continue to work in the underground art world and have gained respect for creating sharply drawn characters inspired by the working class.
Note 2: Screenings at MediaTech are going to take place on 3 screens simultaneously in three different rooms called Rincon, Trestles, and Blacks, each studio is named after a famous California surf spot. Viewers can choose only one of the rooms to view all films in consecutive but unique order and participate in Q&A sessions with all the filmmakers, who will appear in each room at the time of screening of their films. Attendees this day will also have an opportunity to tour a state-of-the-art facility of MediaTech Institute, a local recording arts and digital film school for anyone preparing for a creative career in the media arts. Their audio engineering and digital film courses are designed to help each student develop the skills needed to realize their dreams. The all new facility features equipment from major manufacturers. Apart from this event, course offerings of MediaTech include a Recording Arts Program, and a Digital Film and Video Arts Program. Consisting of two control rooms, a green screen theater, and four recording areas, all connected to a central patch room, the Oceanside campus provides the ultimate in flexible connectivity.
Note 3: LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS. One of recipients of OIFF’s Lifetime Achievement Awards this year is an American film and television actress Sally Kirkland. Golden Globe Award winner and Academy Award nominee (both as Best Actress for her leading role in Anna), Sally Kirkland has a very long and active career.

In the 1970s, Sally had roles in popular films such as The Sting, The Way We Were, A Star Is Born, and Private Benjamin. She was very frequent in television roles, including Felicity, General Hospital, The Simple Life 5: Goes to Camp, and the soap operas Valley of the Dolls, Days of Our Lives, Three’s Company, etc. Major films in which she has appeared include: EDtv, JFK, Adam and Steve, High Stakes (opposite Kathy Bates) and Best of the Best (opposite Eric Roberts and James Earl Jones).

Presented by Antonio F. Vianna (Carlsbad-based novelist of 17 published books and a screenwriter of 3 screenplays that are adapted from 3 of his novels) and Leonie Tremaine (Oceanside-based finalist of the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, who attended Dov Simens Film Production course in Hollywood, as well as American Film Institute courses in screenwriting), the workshop addresses the criteria production companies are looking for in screenplays, suggestions about the writing process, as well as what goes into adapting novels into screenplays. Other relevant material – such as writing loglines, synopses, and query letters – will also be covered. These experienced, prize-winning writers will summarize for attendees the most helpful pointers they’ve gathered over the years. Following their presentation, they will conduct a Q&A session.
“Copyright For Filmmakers” workshop will take place from 1:00 pm to 2:25 pm on Saturday, August 24, at Oceanside Library, downtown Civic Center branch, 330 North Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054 (within walking distance from Star Theatre and during lunch break of screenings at Star). This workshop will provide an overview of copyright laws that filmmakers and videographers need to know to create their work without legal trouble and to successfully sell their work to buyers in the film industry. Additionally the workshop will discuss the legal ins and outs of reusing existing copyrighted content for documentaries, parodies, and remixes, which filmmakers may want to distribute or sell. Finally, the workshop presenter will touch on public domain and Creative Commons sources that can help filmmakers find stock footage, music, and sound effects that they could incorporate into even commercial projects at economical rates or sometimes no cost.

The book is a romantic mystery set in Carlsbad, with an astrological theme, the first in a series of “Horoscope Homicides.” Beginning at the end of September, Amy will be offering a weekly screenwriting workshop with a limited number of members, so that the writers may read each others’ work and make suggestions on how to improve it. —Leonie Tremaine, who now lives on a horse ranch in Oceanside, spent most of her life in Italy, where she worked as a newspaper and magazine journalist. She is a life-long student of astrology, which was useful in her collaboration with her aunt, Amy Albani, in writing “Adios, Aries,” a Finalist in the 2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

“Navigating Into PBS Network”
workshop by award-winning independent filmmaker, Pamela Peek will take place from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm on Sunday, August 19, at Oceanside Library, downtown Civic Center branch, 330 North Coast Hwy, Oceanside, CA 92054. This last workshop in series of Oceanside International Film Festival’s workshops is just within walking distance from Star Theatre, where the closing awards gala will be held from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm. Pamela Peak combines her acting and directing “emotional impact know-how” with twenty-five years of effective marketing experience to address the goal of many filmmakers – entering the world of Public Broadcasting Service network. PBS and its member stations is America’s largest classroom, the nation’s largest stage for the arts and a trusted window to the world. In addition, PBS’s educational media helps prepare children for success in school and opens up the world to them in an age-appropriate way. In this workshop, Pamela emphasizes the importance of factual and emotional insights for filmmakers that they need to hold in mind right from the conception of their films. Pamela’s knowledge and insight is based on her years of effective marketing research and the personal relationships she forged with the PBS programming directors who air her films. The attendees will be shown how return on investment in their production will be directly in proportion to how effectively they engage viewers of their film. All areas of film production important for PBS distribution will be covered in this course – including screenwriting, directing, producing, and marketing.
