The San Diego International Kid's Film Festival promotes the idea of entertainment with education. Supported by many across the world, the festival supports the entertainment and education industries by showcasing international films, and gives young, aspiring filmmakers a channel to communicate to an international community. The resulting collaboration produces a unique multi-cultural experience, engaging young viewers with positive media, as a diverse education.
In 2014, the SDIKFF selected over 48 shorts, one of which by an Oscar Nominated animator, John R. Dilworth’s new film, “The Fog of Courage” (USA). American filmmakers and screenwriters, as well as film delegations from China, Korea, Taiwan, Canada, and many more, appeared at the event.
With goals to promote positive educational impact on children and the youth, the San Diego International Kid’s Film Festival actively supports innovative films made by filmmakers from around the globe. The SDIKFF will host an Opening Night Gala, Culture Forums, Industrial Panel Discussions, and an Award Ceremony. These events will help to facilitate interactions between filmmakers, screenwriters and the local students. The Cultural Forum events will focus on topics such as film production in different countries and cultural contexts. The film juries consist of an outstanding committee of industry personnel. There will also be film distributors present at the festival to secure other desired material.
