Poster Art “Easter eggs”

  • The Yellow Brick Road – a nod to the 85th Anniversary of the Wizard of Oz (and the November theatrical release of WICKED)
  • The license plate
  • The film reel – a nod to the famous blue Coronado Bridge that defines the San Diego Bay waterscape and once crossed brings visitors to a magical seaside village
  • The filmmaker passenger “framing” the perfect shot.
  • The historical Hotel del Coronado – festival presenting sponsor
