The most anticipated installment of San Diego Filipino Cinema’s year-long programming, the San Diego Filipino Film Festival (SDFFF) is back on its third year this fall from October 3-8, 2023. Held during Filipino American History Month in October, SDFFF is SDFC's centerpiece event that aims to raise awareness for Filipino cinema as an important art form and a powerful tool for representation, education, and entertainment. SDFFF will bring San Diego communities together to celebrate diversity, culture, and heritage through cinema with a diverse mix of narrative features, documentaries, and short films
The six-day festival will have a combination of virtual and in-person events, including but not limited to: screenings, Q&As, networking events, additional installments of SDFC’s FILMMERSION filmmaking workshops and panel discussions, and a virtual film market component.
SDFFF aims to not only be a platform to amplify Filipinx visions, voices and stories but also foster new interest in filmmaking and cinema as art throughout the local and global Filipinx community. Despite the festival's emphasis on Filipinx voices, the program includes films that are accessible to everyone and aims to welcome audiences from all backgrounds.
