SDLFF 2016 is seeking innovative, original, and thought-provoking works that are ‘by’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ the Latino community, that have been completed between 2014-2015. Work previously exhibited in the San Diego / Tijuana Border Region – whether theatrically at another local festival or broadcast on television, – is not eligible to apply. A panel of distinguished curators from the San Diego and Tijuana community will select the films to be screened in the “Official Selection” of the festival.
