Get Ready For The 21st Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival

The 21st Annual San Diego Latino Film FestivalThe 21st annual San Diego Latino Film Festival is taking place March 13-23, at the Media Arts Center in San Diego, California. This is a highly-anticipated event, that is a true gem in the Latino community, showcasing the authentic arts and talent of influential individuals through educational, creative and production oriented programs. The Media Arts Center San Diego (MACSD), is a non-profit organization that blossomed through the expansion of the San Diego Film Festival (SDLFF), and partners with them to deliver the annual event. Throughout the ten-day festival, the organization offers diverse, statewide programs and services to residents and visitors, as well as independent and amateur filmmakers. With a mission to challenge the historical exclusion of under-represented communities from the media arts field, and distorted images of a Hispanic communities by mainstream media; the organization takes pride in this influential affair.

The annual film festival works to introduce its audiences to contemporary US-Latino and Latin American cinema, which is otherwise unexposed to the public. It spotlights women filmmakers, a youth media showcase, Gay and Lesbian films and filmmakers among others that are often disregarded. Educational, creative and production oriented programs reach undeserved youth, and residents, while providing MACSD with opportunities for community-based collaborations and the ability to carry out their mission. The event will feature workshops, VIP parties and special guests throughout.

The event is easy to attend, as the Amtrak of California is offering special routes to and from the event destination. Click here for further transportation details.
