Since 2011, the Catalina Film Institute has championed the growth of our artists’ IMAGINATION, EDUCATION and DESTINATION through year-round film workshops, film society screenings, industry panels and inspiring events!

We love film, the creative process, and the story-tellers that create thought-provoking film and new media.

Just like our namesake Hollywood island, Catalina, our goal is to make sure our artists can also stand strong and resolute in the face of the film industry’s rough waters, but more importantly, appreciate all the beauty they’ve struggled with once those waters calm and the spotlight shines down upon them.
