27th San Diego Virtual Latino Film Festival

Sep 17 - Sep 27, 2020

Media Arts Center San Diego is excited to announce the 27th edition of the San Diego Latino Film Festival will relaunch on September 17-27, 2020 on the virtual screening platform Eventive. The festival was originally scheduled to open on March 12, 2020 but was postponed on its inaugural day due to statewide regulations against mass gatherings due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Festival organizers were hopeful for an in-person event being possible but ongoing theater closures have made this an untenable expectation. More importantly, the health and wellness of our supporters is the festival's top priority. Given the virus' disproportionate effects on the local Latinx community, it is our responsibility to ensure that we do our part in reducing the number of transmissions of this virus. All festival related activations will be produced virtually, which include access to over 120+ feature and short length film premieres, Q&As with filmmakers, Sonido Latino concerts, press conferences and more.
