The San Diego Asian Film Festival (SDAFF) is San Diego’s premier film showcase of Asian American and international cinema.

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.
