Film Festival has been changed to June 21 and 22 because of a memorial
for recently deceased Cannon Beach mayor John Williams that will be held
on the previously planned date: May 31.
Williams was stricken abruptly with an infection in early
May, then dying somewhat suddenly a few days later.

and visitors will find the first annual Cannon Beach Film Festival a fun
and festive event. The Cannon Beach Film Festival is sponsored by Coaster
Construction, Cannon Beach History Center, Oregon Beach Vacations and
