20th San Diego Asian Film Festival

150+ films around San Diego to enjoy!

The San Diego Asian Film Festival (SDAFF) is San Diego’s premier film showcase of Asian American and international cinema. Founded in 2000, the festival has grown to become the largest exhibition of Asian cinema in the western United States, and has showcased everything from future classics like Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder (US Premiere) to luminary independent work like Patrick Wang’s award-winning In the Family (North American Premiere). Each year, the festival brings West Coast, North American, and World premieres of films from around the world to San Diego and gives audiences unique opportunities to discover international cinema.

This year, the 19th edition of SDAFF will showcase over 150 films from 20 countries from November 7-16, 2019.

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.
