Frequently Asked Questions:

Why Paso Robles?

Picture a Norman Rockwell painting of tree-lined streets, a working turn-of-the-century train station, a grassy plaza in the center of town surrounded by fine dining, elegant restaurants, wine bars and art galleries, with alleyways where guitar music flows onto the street, and now envision all of this in gorgeous hill country surrounded by vineyards and award-winning wineries, oak trees and hot springs just minutes from some of 'the most beautiful coastline in California, and that is Paso Robles ...and then we ask you, why not here in cowboy wine

country...just south and Sideways of Sundance?

 

 

Why Now?

 

And now envision the idyllic setting above, but with the leaves changing to a soft golden, the crisp fall weather, and lit up streets at night, where festival goers are strolling to screenings and live music concerts in cozy intimate venues, rubbing elbows with filmmakers and musicians, where music and film collide in daytime concerts, wandering minstrels, screenings around the town and in elegant wineries, yes November in cowboy wine country...all captured on film for the World...and you can

combine it with your Thanksgiving Holiday...

 

  Why Digital?

 

Because digital is how it is these days, the cutting edge of the entertainment business is our focus. We'll have panel discussion and notable keynote speakers addressing important industry topics such as VOD, digital, tapeless, multi-platform, mobile and the 3rd screen, high def, 3-D, downloads, streaming, social networks, MySpace, YouTube, and the social-networking... the future of home entertainment centers, projectors, Blu-Ray, and many other topics which will be presented by some of the leaders of the fields...they will be outstanding in their fields, in fact some you will be able to find...out standing in a field,

drinking a fine wine...

Is there gonna be any music at this thing?

A constant theme of the festival is Music in Film, Music Docs and DVDs, so we are celebrating the two art forms and how they blend, from soundtrack composers, films about music and musicians, original songs, and all that goes along with the necessary blending of music and the art of film, therefore it is our goal to provide you with amazing music, from big name performers in large concert settings, to a wide range of talent in cozy candlelit settings, there will be daytime concerts, and evening performances.

Where can I stay?

 

Paso Robles boasts quite a number of fine hotels and bed & breakfasts, not only in the town itself but in

and around the wineries and vineyard-covered hills. Some of our favorites that we like to recommend

will be listed in the very near future, stay tuned to this website for names of hotels and festival rates.

What about the WINE?
 

How many times can we emphasize the gorgeous vineyards and amazing wineries in our area? Wine is a big part of our lives here, and it will be a big part of this festival. Screenings will occur in wineries and tasting rooms. We have an Official Film Fest Sommelier who will prepare a wine list to accompany your viewing choices.  Wineries will host concerts and panel discussions.  Paso Robles Hospice du Rhone is the largest international Rhone-tasting event in the world, the Wine Festival in the Park sets Wine Festival records...come drink wine, see and talk movies, rub shoulders with film makers and experience the digital.

 

It Aint Easy Being Green!

Mother Nature sure has blessed us in these parts, so we are doing our best to keep her happy. Call us hippies if you will, but we are committed to doing our best to protect this little planet of ours, so we pledge to use solar-power generators for concerts, re-usable, compost-able, recyclable containers, and post-consumer recyclable paper for all festival print materials, and recycle the trash, and you send us some other ideas how we can keep the PRDFF Green.  Kermit sez, "Time is fun when your having flys..."
