Advisory Boards

Dedicated to making a difference through film the San Diego Film Foundation and the San Diego International Film Festival is honored to have the support of key community leaders and organizations. Without the support of our advisory boards it would not be possible for us to program and recognize the stories and art of filmmakers from across the globe. Our advisory boards are key supporters and advisors in understanding and representing the concerns of the American Indian, the Military, the Environment, and  issues of  Social Impact in film.

The mission of the San Diego International Film Festival’s American Indian Advisory Board is to authentically tell the story of indigenous people to perpetuate the beauty and strength of these cultures. 

The mission of the San Diego International Film Festival’s Environmental Advisory Board is to showcase films from a diverse group of filmmakers who are delving into the most complex problems, solutions and stories about our planets environment.

Our mission is encourage and support films that raise awareness about human rights and social justice issues.
