Mission Statement

Our mission is to support the art of independent filmmaking through 1) producing an annual film festival, 2) developing stimulating film-related events throughout the year, 3) supporting and nurturing student filmmaking programs in local schools, 4) supporting the development of the local filmmaking industry and, 5) enhancing the economic growth of San Diego through tourism.


Binge Watching for Film Lovers! The San Diego Film Festival is rapidly developing a reputation for premiering blockbuster films right here in San Diego. In 2012 we saw Silver Linings Playbook, Beasts of the Southern Wild and Quartet here long before they became box office hits. In 2013, we premiered 12 Years a Slave, The German, and August: Osage County. And last year it was The Imitation Game and Whiplash, which were honored with four Oscar wins and 11 nominations, plus Wild, Mr. Turner, St. Vincent, The Good Lie, We are looking for hundreds of talented, enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to plan, promote, and produce events and support our guests year-round and during the Festival (October 4-October 8).

Because everyone was professional, kind, dedicated and fun ! I wanted to volunteer even more, but childcare commitments prevented it <sadly> The Volunteer Head Honcho, Rachel, was awesome ! Her whole volunteer staff were helpful and efficient. GREAT Volunteer assignment !!
