2019 marks the 26th Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival (SDLFF). The festival has grown from a modest student film festival (Cine Estudiantil) into one of the largest and well-respected Latino film festivals in the world. With the current political climate surrounding “The Border Wall” and immigration, the proliferation of authentic Latino perspectives is more meaningful now than ever, and the 26th edition of the SDLFF is committed to giving filmmakers a platform to accomplish this. SDLFF was born out of a desire to challenge the negative stereotypes about the Latino experience in movies and to give Latino filmmakers a chance to show the world the realities and richness behind the Latino identity. This year’s celebrations will include a special screening of the 15 finalists of the Migrant Voices Film Competition highlighting the current humanitarian crisis unfolding along the San Diego-Baja California Border. Also, a tribute to iconic Mexican actor Damián Alcázar, a 26th Annual ‘Classics Film Showcase’, 75 + guest filmmakers/celebrities, and the 26th Annual Awards Ceremony Gala to be held March 23rd at Music Box. Plus, over 160 films from Latin America, the United States, and Spain, celebrity appearances, live concerts & performances at the Sonido Latino stage, and the 4th Annual Sabor Latino – Food, Beer & Wine Fest.
