GI Film Festival San Diego Local Film Showcase

The GI Film Festival returns for more online screenings, video-on-demand, and virtual events celebrating veteran and military stories from May 6-11, 2024. The festival includes the Local Film Showcase, which featured San Diego’s filmmakers, events, people, or places.

Post-screening discussions with filmmakers, actors, and documentary subjects are also part of the festival as well as a family movie night which brings military-connected and civilian families together for an evening of movie magic and community spirit.
