Of all of the publicity methods we have tried, the one cited most by those who have attended past festivals is “heard about it from friends.” Please spread the word about the Film Festival among your friends and colleagues. Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/www.sdaff.org and share with others.


Putting on a film festival requires lots of volunteers with all kinds of experience and skill levels, from ticket takers and ushers to social media managers. If you would like to volunteer, email us at volunteer@sandiegoaff.org.
