• A Red Carpet Affair

    Upon arriving at the Orange County Film Festival Awards Show, attendees have an opportunity to socialize and network with a community of filmmakers on the red carpet.

Founded in 2003, The Orange County Film Festival is designed to showcase the work of up and coming filmmakers throughout Orange County. With over 700 people in attendance annually, OCFF has become a widely anticipated event in Southern California that has received recognition nationwide. CAE continues to support and sponsor this glamorous two-night experience that has brought students, families, and the community together to celebrate artistic excellence in filmmaking.
