San Diego, CA--The San Diego Black Film Festival, originally known as the Noir Film Festival, was established in 2004. The event is a yearly fundraiser for the Black Historical Society of San Diego, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The Black Historical Society of San Diego is the largest black historical society in the country.
The San Diego Black Film Festival was established after several board members complained that though San Diego is the second largest city in California, as of 2003, it did not have a viable nor mainstream black film festival.
The San Diego Black Film Festival is now one of the fastest growing film festivals in the country and is the event in southern California where you're mostly likely to spot major black film stars and directors just hanging out, taking in the event and films. You're also likely to meet some of the hottest up and coming black filmmakers around.
The San Diego Black Film Festival features the best in independent black films. The event includes an opening reception, awards party, festival party, panel discussions, celebrity appearances/meet and greet, directors, writers, industry executives, etc.
