San Diego International Children's Film Festival

July-August 2024

The 20th San Diego International Children's Film Festival happens in Summer 2024! More details on this big event on these pages soon!

Films for the San Diego festival are curated from our Los Angeles International Children's Film Festival. Enter your film for LA here !

 

The festival is fundraising to bring Marusya Shuvalova, a young Ukrainian filmmaker, and her family to Los Angeles and San Diego to screen her two fantastic short documentary films about life as a child during wartime. Marusya will also make school appearances and have filmmaker learning experiences with industry professionals.

Please help us support this brave and talented young filmmaker!
