2020 SD International Film Festival
The re-imagined and COVID appropriate 2020 San Diego International Film Festival will take place Oct. 15-18. As the region’s premier film festival and one of the leading stops on the independent film circuit, film lovers will enjoy features, documentaries and shorts online in the San Diego International Film Festival Virtual Village and on the big screen at the Festival Drive-In Movies at Westfield UTC. There will also be a new Drive-In Movies partnership with Westfield out for a pre-festival spin with four nights of drive-in films in September at the Westfield UTC Parking Lot.
The Festival celebrates the power of film to create empathy via new perspectives that emerge from powerful and compelling storytelling. The line-up includes film premieres, the best in independent filmmaking, industry panels and live chats with filmmakers from around the world.
This year’s Festival will present approximately 70 films curated from more than 3,000 submitted entries from more than 65 countries. Selected films for the 2020 Festival will be announced in early September. Visit SDFilmFest.com.
