Join us for our 2nd Annual celebration of environmental, climate, people and arts storytelling! Come see some of the most awe-inspiring, hilarious, and tremendous films about air, land, water, and people.
In 2023, our focus is PEOPLE and ACTION. We are psyched to highlight stories that make us think, learn, and ACT. There is a story for everyone at SDEFF, from animation to surfer girl to underwater noir to journey into the deepest caves, and people's willingness to ACT. Our lineup will entertain, make you jump out of your seats and ACT. Don't miss out on this year's unforgettable storytelling experience!
