ANNOUNCING THE SEPARATION OF SD FILM WEEK AND SD FILM AWARDS!
Combined events will part ways and focus on different missions.

Lights, Camera, Action!

In its 8th year, the Film Awards will again air on KPBS in April of 2022 and award locally-produced narrative and documentary short and feature films. We will host a watch party, red carpet gala, reception, celebrity presenters, as well as other surprises!

Submissions for San Diego Film Awards are now open and films can be submitted on FilmFreeway.

Our Story

The Film Awards used to be the closing event for the annual San Diego Film Week, our own film festival. Since 2021 the San Diego Film Awards are a separate event held in the spring, accepting and awarding documentary shorts, narrative shorts, narrative features, and documentary features.

Established in 2014, it is the only local awards show that recognizes cast, crew, and filmmakers for their achievements in the previous calendar year.
