The San Diego Film Festival (SDFF) is a competitive four-day fest being held blocks from the ocean in the Gaslamp Quarter Sept. 23 – 27.
Co-founded by an award-winning filmmaker, SDFF offers a fresh take on film premieres from American and international features to thought-proving documentaries, short films and music videos.
Festivalgoers can create their own experience with everything from industry access through educational panels, to intimate filmmaker and celebrity gatherings and nightly parties that earned SDFF Best Party Fest in The Ultimate Film Festival Survival Guide.
