COVID-19 / Coronavirus Update
Thank you so much for your patience as we address the fast moving situation of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our thoughts go out to all of those affected. Here’s our update for the 2020 Edition of San Diego Film Week.
Film Week Rescheduled
Unfortunately, we are going to have to reschedule San Diego Film Week.
OUR NEW DATES ARE AUGUST 19-30
We are lucky in that 100% of our venues are available and we’ve already booked the locations for the festival to take place in late August.
Additional Changes to Programming
In addition to changing the date of San Diego Film Week, we will also plan to the do the following:
Hold Virtual Pitchfests and Mixers to help keep our community connected during this challenging time
Hold monthly events and screenings when and if the situation resolves in the next few months.
There is still a chance the August dates may not work depending on the severity and longevity of this crisis. The safety of our community, staff and volunteer teams is of the utmost importance, and we are seeking guidance and directives from local authorities and the CDC to determine if it is safe to continue with our August dates. We will determine this as the date approaches.
Film and Materials Delivery
Please continue to submit your films, stills, trailers, and info by the deadlines and stay tuned for updates. We may end up playing some of the films in earlier screenings prior to Film Week if recommendations and temporary regulations around public gatherings changes in the upcoming months so we still need your materials to be able to do that.
All Access Pass
Although tickets for individual screening blocks and events will not go on sale yet, you are welcome to buy the All Access Pass (fully refundable) with a 15% discount using the code: SDFW15. The purchase would help us continue the amazing work of bringing visibility and opportunities to our talented and diverse community.
