The San Diego American Indian Film Festival (SDAIFF) is offering audiences in San Diego County the finest work in American Indian film and media on an annual basis. The SDAIFF will highlight the best of current films from American Indian filmmakers, producers, directors, and actors working throughout Indian Country. The featured films will address issues that include language re-vitalization, and the significance of tribal culture and more, the film festival showcases American Indian lives and interests with the highest level of critical attention and media excellence.
The SDAIFF, located in Southern California, is at the crossroads of the largest number of reservations in the region and we will be able to reach unprecedented numbers of tribal people and the surrounding community. The festival offers an event that promises not only exclusive viewings, but includes three days of interactive dialogues with film industry professionals, selected panel discussions and opportunity for Q&A sessions after each screening.
