San Diego Film Festival would not be possible without the generous support of our Sponsors and Patrons. We also owe a tremendous amount of gratitude to the hundreds of volunteers that are an integral part of the festivals success. Finally, we are most thankful to the filmmakers and actors, who without their talent and dedication to the art of film, this festival would not be possible.
