Introduction
Italy gives the world culture, and we want to share that culture through the movies we bring directly from Italy – great, award-winning, recent (with English subtitles), all with interesting stories of relationships, love, hate, work, food, identity, all the passions of life.

The SDIFF shows films throughout the year to a continually growing audience, last year filling over 5,000 seats. Almost all films are San Diego premieres, and the SDIFF is practically the only movie bridge between our local scene and Italian culture everywhere. And SDIFF also works at developing story-telling abilities, especially among the young, who will continue to create the culture we admire.

For a little while we can all be Italian; when we see an Italian film presented by the San Diego Italian Film Festival, we can join in a great moment of cultural creation all over the world, and at the same time know that all the world is contained in this one story we share right here, right now.

San Diego Italian Film Festival is a 501c(3) non-profit organization.

The SDIFF has an ambitious goal: 
To make San Diego a high spot for Italian culture. Italy gives the world culture, and we want to share that culture through the movies we bring directly from Italy – great, award-winning, recent (with English subtitles), all with interesting stories of relationships, love, hate, work, food, identity, all the passions of life
