As everyone’s eyes are on Hollywood this weekend for the Academy Awards, why not live the movies you love and explore some of San Diego’s famous locales. Everyone knows that Ron Burgundy calls San Diego his home, but the Anchorman isn’t the only famous face to film in San Diego.
From September 26-30th the San Diego Film Festival (SDFF) celebrates 11 years with more films, insightful industry panels and buzz-worthy events than ever before. While SDFF continues to screen films at the Reading Cinemas Gaslamp in the Gaslamp Quarter, as it has for the past 10 years, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego – La Jolla will also host numerous screenings and events. The duel locations allow SDFF to provide more opportunities to celebrate a wide spectrum of independent film while showcasing two of San Diego’s most popular and distinctive neighborhoods. If you can swing it, splurge on the VIP Festival Pass and enjoy the festival as it was meant to be – a celebration of creativity and community. Otherwise, after the break are a few signature events not to be missed.
