Our Story

Since 2017, Film Week is a countywide celebration that showcases, celebrates and grows our local film industry by promoting the diverse filmmakers, actors, film festivals, production companies, studios, schools, artists and creatives that make up the local community.

After many years of producing weekend festivals and hosting the San Diego Film Awards, Film Consortium started receiving hundreds of films each year and decided to step it up. Inspired by “San Diego Beer Week”, San Diego Film Week was born as a space to showcase and celebrate many talented filmmakers as well as other local organizations.

After the many challenges of Covid-19, the 2021 event will be held between November 2021 and March 2022. In addition to live and virtual events, films will be presented in unique and innovative ways including broadcast on KPBS, screened at the San Diego International Airport, and streamed on our NEW Film Consortium TV channel.

This year our event will offer far more ways to participate than previous years. You can attend a live screening, or event, participate in virtual workshops and programs, watch films on your computer from our NEW streaming channel, or turn on your TV and enjoy programs on KPBS from the comfort of your own couch.
