Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The San Diego Asian Film Foundation (SDAFF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the community about the rich diversity of the Asian Pacific Islander culture through films and videos. The premiere event of the SDAFF is its annual film festival in October. One of our goals is to build stronger ties with area schools to foster discussion and education about Asian Cinema. The SDAFF offers student internships, cultural literacy programs with area high schools and colleges, and a nurturing environment for artists in San Diego. Throughout the year, we hold special events such as our Korean Cinema Showcase and Performers Showcase that highlight Asian and Asian American cultures and talents.
The San Diego Asian Film Foundation is a nonprofit corporation formed in 2002. Before being our own organization, SDAFF began as an annual film festival in August 2000, organized by the Asian American Journalists Association of San Diego. AAJA teamed up with filmmakers, artists, educators, and community groups and leaders to present the first SDAFF at the University of San Diego. Since then, the festival has grown into its own non profit organization, hence the San Diego Asian Film Foundation. We serve our community and Asian American artist by meeting demands for diverse arts programs in the region. We've just celebrated our 5th annual film festival with more than 9,000 in attendance. The San Diego Asian Film Festival has gained an international reputation as one of North America's premiere Asian American film festivals for our excellent programs, outreach to the community, and support for independent artists.
