Women's Film Festival San Diego
November 13th - 15th, 2020
Who We Are
The Women's Film Festival San Diego is an annual event that is committed to providing a platform for women filmmakers and storytellers, elevating global perspectives that illustrate how bound we all are to one another.
The films screened at the Festival showcase a diverse spectrum of talent both on and off the screen. This allows audience members in our community who aren’t usually represented in the film industry to finally be seen and heard on the big screen.
This year's event is organized by Dineo Maine, WFFSD Festival Director
2020 Virtual Film Festival
In order to slow down the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to take the Festival out of its usual form and offer a completely online experience.
Set for November 13- 15, 2020, the online edition of the festival will offer a slate of films on a VOD model in partnership with Festival Scope and Shift72.
Alongside screenings, there will also be virtual Q&As and discussion panels in a bid to maintain the festival’s sense of community and dedication to providing filmmakers a platform to communicate and build relationships in the industry.

THE FIGHT is an inspiring, emotional insider look at how these important battles are fought and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting them. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. THE FIGHT celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms.
