You don’t have to visit Hollywood to experience the magic of a world premiere! This year, we are proud to be showcasing three different films that will be debuting for the very first time: 7 Miles of Paradise, The Play, and Leonard Tose. All three are, in their own way, thought-provoking, intriguing and educating. These world premieres will take center stage on Saturday, September 12 at two different venues, the Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium and the luxurious Cinépolis La Costa. There will also be short Q&A sessions directly following both The Play and 7 Miles of Paradise.  Here’s a brief look at the three different World Premiere films at the 2015 La Costa Film Festival:

1. 7 Miles of Paradise is directed by Philip Waller and delves into the incredible subculture of surfing in Hawaii. The North Shore of Oahu is known to be popular among some of the world’s best surfers; many of them have created their careers and even made their livings from surfing these shores. The film focuses on one pro-surfer in particular – Anastasia Ashley, who grew up along the Hawaiian coast. She will be your tour guide and will take you to the places she loves. Through her stories, the audience comes to understand the magic of the North Shore and a little bit of why it’s referred to as “7 Miles of Paradise.” The Q&A session will be at 6:30pm directly following the film at the Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium.

2. The Play (directed by Peter Vogt). The game between the University of California Golden Bears and the Stanford Cardinal on November 20th, 1982, is recognized as one of the most memorable plays in college football history and among the most unforgettable in American sports. To this day the legality, controversy, details, and glory of this bizarre moment are hotly debated and roundly celebrated by the alumni of Stanford and Cal Berkeley as well as by football fans around the world. The Q&A for this film will be at 2pm at Cinépolis.

3. Leonard Tose (directed by Mike Tollin). Leonard Tose was an owner of the Philadelphia Eagles from 1969–1985. He founded a multi million-dollar trucking business and later bought the Philadelphia Eagles football team in 1969. He was well known for his flamboyant, extravagant lifestyle, and eventually lost his fortune because of a gambling addiction and alcoholism. During his term as the owner of the Eagles, he was instrumental in helping to establish the first Ronald McDonald House, a charity that allows families to access specialized medical treatment by providing a place to stay at little or sometimes no cost.

Films of this caliber simply won’t be screened anywhere else this year. Get your tickets for these screenings and more here now!
