The ninth annual San Diego Italian Film Festival showcases the best of new Italian film and culture with a series of premieres ranging from engaging dramas and entertaining comedies to documentaries telling unique stories. All but one of the films were produced in Italy in 2013 and 2014, and all but one are San Diego premieres, with several regional premieres and one U.S. premiere. The festival will present 12 Italian films, all but one of which have never been shown in San Diego, including incisive documentaries reflecting life and society in Italy today.
The San Diego Italian Film Festival is about more than just movies—it is about identity, history, and a shared appreciation of Italian culture and great cinema. In a word, it is about community, a place for a diverse audience of film lovers and those who appreciate Italian culture. Movies or events such as CineCucina or Dine on the Docks are presented year-round, celebrating Italian film and cuisine. The annual SDIFF Gala brings people together in lively Italian style providing guests with great film and food for the senses.
