In order to spotlight African American & African Diaspora Cinema, we screen over 100 films each year: Comedy, Drama, Documentaries, Animation, GLBT, Horror, Religious, Foreign/African Diaspora, Shorts, Feature Films and music videos.
As the first and largest black film festival of the year, numerous other film festival reps scout new films from us for their event. Simply put, each year the San Diego Black Film Festival will premiere a large percentage of the independent films that will prove successful throughout the year at other film festivals.
All film tickets, passes, and events can be purchased at the festival box office located at 220 West "G" St.
You may also purchase your film or event tickets on the day of the event at the actual location of the film or event. In this case, simply show up at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the film or event and attempt to purchase your way in. However, there is no guarantee that the event or film would not have already sold out. Therefore, it might be a good idea to advance purchase your film or event ticket days prior to the start of the film or event. You may purchase your film or event ticket from the festival box office located at the Black Film Centre. Or, purchase online on the day of the film or event.
