Lone Pine: Where the Real West Becomes the Reel West

Film Festival October 5th – 8th 2023

Events will be held throughout town – at the high school, Museum of Western Film History, and the park – so take some time to immerse yourself in Lone Pine as well, and see if you don’t fall for the same charm that first bewitched Hollywood back in the 1920s. However you spend your time here, have fun as you join the Lone Pine Film Festival for its ceremonious
comeback, and be sure to come back again!

Since 1920, hundreds of films; including Gunga Din, How the West Was Won, King of the Khyber Rifles, High Sierra; and TV Episodes as The Lone Ranger and Bonanza; with such stars as Tom Mix, Hopalong Cassidy, Roy Rogers, Gary Cooper, Gene Autry, Glenn Ford, Humphrey Bogart, and John Wayne, have filmed in these rugged Alabama Hills with the majestic Sierra Nevada background.

Lone Pine films run a wide gamut, from classic John Wayne oaters like “Westward Ho!” and “Rio Grande,” to Randolph Scott movies like “Hangman’s Knot” and “High Sierra,” to popular movies from more recent decades, including Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” and several short films made in Lone Pine by up-and-coming auteurs. Many of the films will be kicked off with introductions by celebrity guests and/or accompanied by Q&As. Several are also paired with the movie location tours, so festivalgoers can see the famous sites on celluloid and then in real life.
