Be the first to get a glimpse at the Third Annual San Diego Filipino Film Festival film lineup at our Magic Hour: SDFFF Preview Night Gala! Enjoy an intimate night of scrumptious Filipino cuisine, an open bar, performances by San Diego's Philippine Performing Arts Company (PASACAT), and the Philippine Chamber Singers - Los Angeles. The evening's Master of Ceremonies is Emmy award-winning television news journalist, Maria Arcega-Dunn. This annual event benefits San Diego Filipino Cinema's centerpiece event of the year - San Diego Filipino Film Festival - and our year-round film screenings and educational film programs for our San Diego community in 2024.

Join us in continuing to build a robust film community and a stronger representation through cinema at this year's Magic Hour and SDFFF.
