Making A Difference For Nonprofits Program

San Diego Film Foundation

Purpose

The San Diego Film Foundation’s Making A Difference for Nonprofits Program is designed to create a revenue source for nonprofit organizations by offering special pricing for the San Diego International Film Festival with a portion of the proceeds rebated to the nonprofit.  

The benefit for the nonprofit is that it is a turn-key opportunity to provide added benefits for the nonprofit’s members/supporters and generate revenue for the nonprofit.  

The benefit for the San Diego Intl Film Foundation is to introduce a broader audience to the vast scope of more than 2000 documentaries, shorts, and feature films submitted each year to the Festival from over 65 countries.
