20 Year Anniversary of the SD Film Fest

About SDIFF:
The San Diego International Film Festival has advocated that cinema is a catalyst for positive
change because it provides perspectives that often touch our hearts leading us to help find
solutions. The curated independent films presented by this Festival have covered topics such as homelessness, prejudice, pollution of the world’s rivers, animal and environmental extinction, sustainability, sex-trafficking, military life, and so much more. The Festival also presents ‘feel good’ films that inspire and reinforce the best in all of us … as well as fun films that simply provide a much-needed laugh.

Join us in Balboa Park at The Museum of Photographic Arts and The San Diego Museum of Art,
in Mission Bay at The Catamaran Resort, Downtown San Diego on board the USS Midway and
Online in the Festival’s Virtual Village …
