The San Diego Film Foundation (SDFF) is dedicated to making a difference through film. We believe that film can be transformative and we are bound together through human connection. Our mission is to use film to explore issues of global impact, to create dialog, to encourage self-reflection, and ultimately to develop empathy and understanding in an increasingly diverse and complex world.
A 501c.3. the San Diego Film Foundation brings the finest independent cinematic storytelling from around the world to San Diego each year. We present films that make a difference through a robust variety of events and programs including:
Plus a variety of community and private events throughout the year
Each year the SDFF focuses on topical initiatives that help guide the content presented through the San Diego International Film Festival, educational programs and all of our community and private screenings.
Play a leading role in bringing independent filmmaking to San Diego and join us as we provide opportunities to our community to build empathy and connection. We welcome both Individual and Corporate Donors to our Patron Circle. Patron Circle supporters enjoy an elevated Festival experience with perks and benefits throughout the year reserved just for them!
