San Diego Black Film Festival

Established in 2002 and held each year during the last week of January, the San Diego Black Film Festival has grown to become one of the largest black film festivals in the country.

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 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 black films that will prove successful throughout the year at other film festivals.
