Contemporary art and independent film collide for five days in Carmel-by-the-Sea during the Carmel Art & Film Festival. The festival features art in almost every medium including music, fine art, photography and, of course, film. Events will be scattered throughout the artist's haven of Carmel-by-the-Sea with the Sunset Cultural Center as the hub for the event.
Art is one of the main focal point of this marquee event. Mr. Brainwash is back this year and is bringing even more show-stopping creative pieces. You can see some of his masterpieces around town.
Over 100 films will be shown for four days straight beginning Thursday, October 11th. Film categories include narrative features, documentaries, shorts and student films. Venues include the Sunset Center, the Golden Bough Playhouse and the Carmel High School Performing Arts Center. On Saturday, don't forget to bring the entire family for a special screening of "Step Into Liquid" on beautiful Carmel Beach.
