Aiming to highlight the African and African-American experience in film, the San Diego Black Film Festival will return next year (January 30 to February 2, 2014) to provide exposure to stories and projects that are usually underrepresented on mainstream filmmaking. Hosted in one of California's more beloved cities, the festival is a great opportunity to honor these artists and create a community to further develop films that showcase their unique vision.

Aiming to highlight the African and African-American experience in film, the San Diego Black Film Festival will return next year (January 30 to February 2, 2014) to provide exposure to stories and projects that are usually underrepresented on  mainstream filmmaking. Hosted in one of California's more beloved cities, the festival is a great opportunity to honor these artists and create a community to further develop films that showcase  their unique vision. 



The program will include competitive categories ranging from dramas to comedies, animation to documentaries, religious films and music videos, and even LGBT stories. Last year's award winners included a documentary chronicling the struggle of Muslim Americans in the face of prejudice (The Test of Freedom), a drama following a gospel quartet as they seek to help the homeless (Gospel Good, Gospel Bad, Gospel Ugly), and a comedy centering on a donut shop that will do anything to stay profitable (The Donut Shop).
