LATEST NEWS!

NOTICE: We want to send our sympathies to everyone affected by the COVID-19 situation. We are working behind the curtains with the filmmakers and participants to provide an alternative to the planned festival. IMFF 2020 was scheduled to take place as a Live Event, in the way we have provided the physical space in San Diego every single year since our commemorative film festival. The challenge is being met wholeheartedly. We appreciate the response from all the filmmakers and participants, including the judges. Stay tuned for more announcements as we provide information on how to experience the "virtual" version of #MFF2020SanDiego which will take place April 25 & 26.

Please support our efforts if you are able to. Thank you.
